We have grown single crystalline InN films on sapphire substrate using metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE). Electron mobility exceeding 1100 cm2/V sec was obtained for the as-grown films, with a donor concentration of 1-2 × 1019 cm-3. The observed mobility was higher than other reports using the MOVPE technique, and was comparable to the best results with similar carrier concentration using molecular beam epitaxy. Photoluminescence measurement showed a broad emission near 1.6 μm, indicating a likely narrow bandgap similar to many recent reports on InN. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic analysis revealed little oxygen in the InN films grown.
