Abstract

We have employed the photoluminescence (PL) and surface photovoltage spectroscopy (SPS) measurements to study the effects of (NH4) 2Sx treatment on the optical and electrical properties of p -type GaN (p -GaN) in this study. From the PL and SPS measurements, it is suggested that the (MgGa - VN) 2+ (MgGa: Ga vacancies occupied by Mg; VN: nitrogen vacancies) complexes near the p -GaN surface region were transformed into the (MgGa - SN) 0 (SN: N vacancies occupied by S) complexes after (NH4) 2Sx treatment, which resulted in the reduction of the ~2.8-eV PL intensity and the increase of the hole concentration near the p -GaN surface region.
