Admittance spectroscopy of Mg-doped GaN grown by molecular beam epitaxy using RF nitrogen sources


Thermal activation energies of Mg in GaN grown using RF nitrogen source with varying Mg flux were examined using an admittance spectroscopy technique. There was no noticeable difference or trend in the activation energy with varying Mg flux. The thermal activation energy for GaN:Mg was ∼115 meV under the investigated Mg flux range. Negligible persistent photo-conductivity and yellow luminescence peak in PL observed in the samples suggest possible reduction of the thermal activation energies compared to the values in the literature.
