We report on the cathodoluminescence (CL) of nominally undoped semi-insulating GaN layers grown by hot-wall metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) at a threefold increase of the growth rate limited by the TMGa flow. The growth kinetics is such, that C is the only background impurity in the layers with controllably increasing concentration from 5 x 10(16) to 6 x 10(17) cm(-3), while other background impurities, H. O and Si, are essentially at the SIMS detection levels. The hot-wall MOCVD is not an ordinary approach to GaN growth process and this study corroborates a more perceptive outlook on the C incorporation in GaN and any potential C-incorporation-mediated luminescence, including the observed here blue luminescence (BL) at similar to 417 nm, and the yellow luminescence (YL) with shifting peak position towards shorter wavelengths, similar to 555-543-525 nm.
