# Structural and Optical Properties of Nonpolar InGaN/GaN Multiple Quantum Wells Grown on Planar and Lateral Epitaxially Overgrown $m$-Plane GaN Films

## 抄録

The structural and optical properties of nonpolar ($1\bar{1}00$) $m$-plane InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs), grown simultaneously on reduced-defect lateral epitaxially overgrown (LEO) $m$-plane GaN and high-defect-density planar $m$-plane GaN, were investigated. Atomic force microscopy images of the LEO $m$-plane MQW sample revealed the presence of smooth steps on the Ga-face wings. The presence of stacking-fault-related defects was observed in the window and the N-face wing regions. Transmission electron microscopy on the sample revealed abrupt quantum well interfaces. High-resolution X-ray diffraction analysis showed that the In incorporation was the same in the LEO sample and in the planar sample. Spot-excitation cathodoluminescence measurement revealed a similar emission wavelength for the nearly defect-free laterally overgrown regions and the defective window regions. However, the emission from the reduced-defect-density wings of the LEO $m$-plane GaN was more than six times stronger than the emission from the neighboring defective windows. Wide-area photoluminescence measurement showed a similar emission wavelength for the LEO sample and the planar MQW sample.
