Cork, Ireland
A comprehensive description of a procedure to form dense locally ordered 2D arrays of vertically aligned hexagonal in section GaN nanocolumns (NCs) without height deviations will be presented. Particular focus will be given for the preparation of silica nanosphere hard masks, dry etching to form GaN NCs, wet etching to modify NC shape, thermal annealing and regrowth to recover non-polar m-plane facets, improve NC crystal quality and array fill factor.
