We investigated the polarization and temperature dependence of photoluminescence (PL) of m-plane GaN grown on γ-LiAlO2 (100) substrate. The calculated electronic band structure with k•p Hamiltonian points out the energy splitting as well as polarization selection originate from the m-plane GaN epilayer under anisotropic strain. The polarization-angle dependence PL spectra are found to be selected from in-plane x- and z-polarized emission, corresponding to T1 and T2 transition. And the intensity distribution of the fitting peaks satisfies the Malus’ law. An S-shape energy evolution of near band edge peak on temperatures is observed, which originates from the transition between the localized holes and electrons in triangular potentials induced by basal stacking faults.
