ABSTRACT
A deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) study has been performed on a GaN n[sup +]-p junction fabricated by implanting Si into a Mg-doped p-type GaN epilayer. A high concentration of a deep level defect has been revealed within the interfacial region of the junctions by the unusual appearance of a minority peak in the majority carrier DLTS spectra. The deep level defect appears to be an electron trap at E[sub C]-0.59 eV in the p-side region of the junction and has tentatively been attributed to the V[sub N]-Mg complex. The high concentration of this electrically active deep level defect in the depletion layer of the Si-implanted GaN n[sup +]-p junction diodes suggests the need for further investigations.

    We show that the usual Arrhenius analysis of the main electron-irradiation-induced defect trap in n-type GaN, observed by deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS), is not sufficiently accurate. Instead, an exact fitting of the DLTS spectrum for this trap reveals two components, each of which has...
