The hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) of InN with various configurations was studied by thermodynamic analysis. For the high-speed growth of InN, analyses of the source zone and InN growth zone were performed. It was shown that the use of Cl2 instead of HCl as a chlorine source is necessary for the HVPE of InN. An additional supply of Cl2 was found to be effective for the preferential generation of a reactive InCl3 precursor. A new system, the (In–Cl2)–Cl2–NH3 system, was proposed for the HVPE of InN with a high growth rate.
