Abstract

In this communication we discuss effects of n-type doping of GaN epilayers and InGaN/GaN quantum well structures. We evaluate the influence of n-type doping on a structural quality of the samples (using atomic force and scanning electron microscopy), on light emission intensity and on in-plane emission intensity variations. Possible mechanisms responsible for strong enhancement of light emission from doped samples are discuss based on the results of cathodoluminescence, photoluminescence (PL), PL kinetics and PL in-plane variations.

This work was partly supported by the DENIS program of European Union (G5RD-CT-2001-00566).
