ABSTRACT
Two-hundred-period high-quality AlN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy are studied using high-resolution x-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and optical transmission spectroscopy. Excellent interfaces of the MQWs are confirmed by these measurements. The strong intersubband absorption peak at a wavelength of 1.68 μm is achieved for AlN (1.6 nm)/GaN(1.7 nm) MQW. The full width at half-maximum of the absorption peak is estimated to be 27 meV.
