The diffraction of guided optical waves on surface acoustic waves in a GaN layer grown by metalorganic chemical-vapor deposition on a (0001) sapphire substrate has been experimentally studied. The measurements have been performed at optical wavelengths 442 and 633 nm for the acoustic wavelength of 16 μm. The acousto-optic diffraction regime was close to the pure Bragg diffraction regime. The advantage of considerably lower acoustic power required at the shorter optical wavelength for diffraction is demonstrated. Our results show the potential of GaN-based structures for the development of blue acousto-optical devices. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    Luminescence properties of the transition-metal chromium-doped gallium nitride (GaCrN) epitaxial layers on sapphire substrates have been extensively studied by varying the doping level, excitation intensity, and temperature of study. Photoluminescence spectra of the doped films were found to be...

    We have investigated the initial stage of GaN epitaxial growth on 6H-SiC (0001) at low substrate temperatures by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). We found that GaN grows epitaxially even at room temperature (RT) on atomically flat 6H-SiC (0001) surfaces, which can be explained by the enhanced...

    Three-beam X-ray diffraction in AlGaN/GaN superlattices (SLs) grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on c-sapphire has been measured in the Renninger scheme. The primary beam corresponds to a forbidden 0001 reflection. Then, θ-scan curves were measured at the maximum of each...

    When optical measurements of wafer curvature are used to determine thin-film stress, the laser beams that probe the sample are usually assumed to reflect specularly from the curved surface of the film and substrate. Yet, real films are not uniformly thick, and unintended thickness gradients...

    We have grown GaN films on ZrB2 substrates at room temperature (RT) by using a pulsed-laser deposition technique. Reflection high-energy electron diffraction observations have revealed that GaN growth can occur in a layer-by-layer mode, even at RT, and that the surfaces of the films are...
