ABSTRACT
We have used a low-energy positron beam to identify In vacancies in InN layers grown on Al[sub 2]O[sub 3] by molecular beam epitaxy. Their concentration decreases from ∼5×10[sup 18] to below 10[sup 16] cm[sup -3] with increasing layer thickness (120–800 nm). The decrease in the vacancy concentration coincides with the increase in the electron Hall mobility, suggesting that In vacancies act as electron scattering centers. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
