Threading dislocations in metal-organic chemical-vapor grown GaN films were imaged nondestructively by the electron channeling contrast imaging (ECCI) technique. Comparisons between ECCI and cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy indicated that pure edge dislocations can be imaged in GaN by ECCI. Total threading dislocation densities were measured by ECCI for various GaN films on engineered 4H-SiC surfaces and ranged from 107 to 109 cm-2. A comparison between the ultraviolet electroluminescent output measured at 380 nm and the total dislocation density as measured by ECCI revealed an inverse logarithmic dependence.
