Effects of Ga Supply on the Growth of (11‐22) AlN on m‐Plane (10‐10) Sapphire Substrates

Flat and high‐quality semipolar AlN layers are crucial to realizing polarization‐reduced deep‐UV optical devices. We investigate the effects of Ga supply during the growth of semipolar AlN on m‐plane sapphire with the aim to produce better surface morphology. Incorporation of Ga into AlN is negligibly small at high‐temperature growth. The surface roughness significantly decreased with increasing the TMGa flow at a constant V/III ratio.

As shown by atomic force microscopy images (5 × 5 µm2) of AlN layers grown with and without a TMGa flow, the addition of Ga during the growth of (11‐22) AlN significantly improves the surface morphology.
