Nonpolar GaN crystal on lattice-matched [100] γ-LiAlO2 substrate was grown by a newly designed chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reactor. Following the CVD growth, x-ray diffraction indicated that the GaN film was oriented in the nonpolar m-plane with [10̄10] orientation. Further structural characterizations and defect analysis of nonpolar GaN material was performed using transmission electron microscope. Low-temperature photoluminescence was dominated by neutral donor bound excitons and the yellow luminescence was negligible. Raman spectroscopy showed that the as-grown GaN {10̄10} epilayer on [100] γ-LiAlO2 substrate were indeed of good quality. Compared to the previous report, nonpolar GaN with an improved quality was demonstrated by modifying the inner structure of the CVD reactor.
