The effect of growth regime on the deep level spectrum of n-GaN using molecular-beam epitaxy (MBE) was investigated. As the Ga/N flux ratio was decreased towards Ga-lean conditions, the concentration of two acceptor-like levels, at Ec-3.04 and 3.28 eV, increased from 1015 to 1016 cm-3 causing carrier compensation in these films. Thus, these two traps behaved as the dominant compensating centers in MBE n-GaN. Furthermore, the increase in trap concentration also strongly correlated with the degradation of both surface morphology and bulk electron mobility towards Ga-lean conditions, where higher pit densities and lower mobility were observed. These results show that the growth regime directly impacts all morphology, bulk transport, and trap states in n-GaN. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
