The growth mode of N-face GaN deposited on AlN(0001) by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy has been investigated. Based on reflection high-energy electron diffraction experiments, we demonstrate that for appropriate Ga fluxes and substrate temperature, a self-regulated 1-ML-thick Ga excess film can be formed on the growing surface. Depending on the presence of this Ga monolayer, the growth can proceed following either the Stranski–Krastanow or the Frank Van der Merwe growth modes, hence enabling the synthesis of either quantum dots or quantum wells.
