Abstract [en]

Polarized microphotoluminescence (mu-PL) and reflectivity studies of thick wurtzite GaN grown by hydride vapor phase epitaxy on c sapphire are performed with the light vector k both normal to the c axis (kperpendicular toc) and parallel to it. A strong PL peak is found in the vicinity of the A exciton in pi polarization (kperpendicular toc, E parallel to the c axis). in apparent contradiction to the selection rules. The pi-polarized component exceeds in intensity the sigma-polarized one up to similar to50 K. Power- and temperature-dependent measurements of both no-phonon and longitudinal optical phonon-assisted (monitoring the real density of exciton states) mu-PL reveal the complex nature of the pi-polarized PL line near the A exciton. At low temperatures the pi-component involves a bound B exciton contribution, while at higher temperatures contributions of scattered A exciton states become appreciable, The enhancement of the pi-polarized component is attributed to the complex structure of the exciton-polariton branches for kperpendicular toc. Temperature-dependent mu-PL and reflectance spectroscopies reveal additionally a difference in the optical properties between the sample regions at the top surface and the cleaved edges, tentatively explained as induced by different strains in these regions.
