Comparing the imaginary part of the dielectric function of wurtzite GaN measured by spectroscopic ellipsometry at room temperature with calculations, we found the values of Ep=(19.8±0.5) eV, m0*=(0.201±0.005)m0, and F=-0.89±0.05 for the momentum matrix element, electron effective mass at the conduction band edge, and parameter F describing the influence of remote bands, respectively. We also observed a remarkable nonparabolicity of the conduction band. The data obtained are consistent with A sets of valence band parameters reported earlier providing a parameterization of band structure of wurtzite GaN in the vicinity of the Γ point.
