Growth behaviors of GaN on patterned GaN substrate were studied herein. Spiral and nucleation growth were observed after miscut-induced atomic steps disappeared. The morphology of nucleation growth at different temperature is explained by a multi-nucleation regime introducing critical supersaturation. Simulated results based on a step motion model successfully explain the growth behaviors on stripes. These findings can be applied to control the surface kinetics of devices such as laser diodes grown on patterned substrate. View Full-Text
