The Spatial Distribution of Threading Dislocations in Gallium Nitride Films



Spatial analysis techniques are used to study threading dislocations (TDs) at the surfaces of a wide range of GaN films. In all films, the dislocation positions are consistent with a spatially random TD generation process followed by movement of dislocations, but are inconsistent with the spatial distribution of dislocations expected at island coalescence boundaries.
