Despite the rapid progress of GaN light-emitting diodes, the quest for better epistructure quality with less defects and relaxed strains to achieve higher internal quantum efficiency has been a popular topic. Here, we propose an AlN nanorod template grown on the sapphire substrate using vapor-liquid-solid method. The corresponding material quality, including voids near nanorods, Raman spectra, and transmission electron microscopy images, indicates significant improvement.
