A high quality GaN Schottky barrier photodetector (PD) was prepared on patterned sapphire substrates (PSSs) by metallorganic chemical vapor deposition. Compared with the PD prepared on a conventional flat sapphire substrate, we can reduce dark current and enhance responsivity. Under a -2 V applied bias, noise equivalent power and normalized detectivity (D) were 9.08× 10 -11 W and 1.74× 1010 cm Hz0.5 W-1, respectively, for the PD prepared on PSS. These values were also better than those achieved from the PD prepared on a flat sapphire substrate.
