Abstract [en]

We report microphotoluminescence studies of GaN/AlN quantum dots grown along the (0001) crystal axis by molecular-beam epitaxy on sapphire substrates. To obtain quantum dots with different density and size a nominal GaN coverage was varied from 1 to 4 monolayers. The highest density of quantum dots was about 1011 cm-2, so about 103 quantum dots was excited in experiments. We found that the photoluminescence intensity of a sample with the smallest amount of deposited GaN decreases in more than two orders of magnitude under continuous-wave laser exposure during about 30 minutes and then it remains stable. The photoluminescence intensity of the rest samples was time-independent quantity. The emission band of the former sample exhibits a prominent linear polarization along the growth plane. We assume that the quite high degree of polarization can be due anisotropy of strain and/or shape of the quantum dots formed near dislocations which act also as recombination centers causing photoluminescence quenching.
