Low-temperature hollow cathode plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition of crystalline III-nitride thin films and nanostructures
Hollow cathode plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition (HCPA-ALD) is a promising technique for obtaining III-nitride thin films with low impurity concentrations at low temperatures. Here we report our previous and current efforts on the development of HCPA-ALD processes for III-nitrides together with the properties of resulting thin films and nanostructures. The content further includes nylon 6,6-GaN core-shell nanofibers, proof-of-concept thin film transistors and UV photodetectors fabricated using HCPA-ALD-grown GaN layers, as well as InN thin films deposited by HCPA-ALD using cyclopentadienyl indium and trimethylindium precursors. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
