Hollow-cathode plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition: A novel route for low-temperature synthesis of crystalline III-nitride thin films and nanostructures
Hollow cathode plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition is a promising technique for obtaining III-nitride thin films with low impurity concentrations at low temperatures. Here we report our efforts on the development of HCPA-ALD processes for III-nitrides together with the properties of resulting thin films and nanostructures. The content will further include nylon 6,6/GaN core/shell and BN/AlN bishell hollow nanofibers, proof-of-concept thin film transistors and UV photodetectors fabricated using HCPA-ALD-grown GaN layers, as well as early results for InN thin films deposited by HCPA-ALD technique. © 2015 IEEE.
