Abstract: Nanoscale laterally epitaxial overgrown (NLEO) GaN layers were investigated on Si (111) substrate. Nanoporous SiO2 films on the surfaces of GaN/Si (111) were fabricated by inductively coupled plasma etching using anodic alumina templates as etch masks. GaN was grown over the nanoporous SiO 2 layer using metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Supersaturation of the source material was investigated to realize a continuous and smooth film. NLEO GaN layers were found to result in a significant reduction of threading dislocation density ∼108 cm-2, characterized by atomic force microscopy and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy. High quality GaN nanorod arrays has also been demonstrated and investigated on Si (111) substrates. Nanoscale overgrowth is a promising method to improve the quality of GaN semiconductor materials for the commercialization of GaN devices on Si substrates. © 2008 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
