A pulsed metal-organic chemical vapor deposition technique is developed for the growth of high-quality AlN/GaN superlattices (SLs) with intersubband (ISB) transitions at optical communications wavelengths. Tunability of the AlN and GaN layers is demonstrated. Indium is shown to improve SL surface and structural quality. Capping thickness is shown to be crucial for ISB transition characteristics. Effects of barrier- and well-doping on the ISB absorption are reported.
