ABSTRACT
Lateral electron mobilities in 0.2-µm-thick n-(Ga, Mn)N films were obtained from Hall measurements, producing values of 116∼ 102 cm²/V s in the temperature range from 298 to 373 K. These values are comparable to, but slightly lower than, electron mobilities in n-GaN of the same electron concentration. By sharp contrast, analysis of the reverse saturation current in mesa Schottky diodes fabricated in the n-(Ga, Mn)N show vertical electron mobilities of 840∼336 cm²/V s in the temperature range from 298 to 373 K. This is consistent with a reduction in electron scattering by charged dislocations for vertical transport geometries [M. Misra, A. V. Sampath, and T. D. Moustakas, Appl. Phys. Lett. 76, 1045 (2000)].

    It has recently been suggested that the thin degenerate layer found at the GaN/sapphire interface results from a high concentration of stacking faults. The studies of this letter, however, show that this is not the most likely explanation for the presence of such a degenerate layer. Using x-ray...
