Nanostructures on GaN by Microsphere Lithography
The fabrication of nanopores on GaN substrates using the simple and economical technique of microsphere lithography is demonstrated. A self-assembled hexagonal microsphere array formed on GaN substrate acts as a hard-mask for the fabrication of nanostructures. In subsequent dry etch processes, arrays of holes in a nanostructure were formed on top of the LED. The structural properties of the nanopores are characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), while photoluminescence (PL) measurements showed a 25% enhancement of light emission intensity, attributed to improved light extraction.
