|Abstract:||We have investigated optical properties of the GaN etched surface using uv-micro-photoluminescence (PL) and micro-Raman scattering. The effects of wet chemical treatment (HCl and KOH) and Cl2-based inductively coupled plasma etching on optical properties of n-type GaN have been studied. The damage introduced by dry etching was assessed and improvement of the band-edge PL was observed during post-etch annealing of the samples. The surface stoichiometry of the GaN surfaces subjected to different processing steps has been analysed based on the results of x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The atomic force microscopy technique is employed to investigate the surface morphology. Apart from phonons of GaN, Raman spectra also show impurity-induced local vibrational modes. In addition, electronic Raman peaks were observed in the low-frequency region. We have also carried out micro-Raman and PL measurements to investigate optical properties of n-type GaN annealed under different conditions. Biaxial strain and phonon lifetimes have been estimated in GaN subjected to various processing conditions.|
