We report the fabrication of GaN photodetectors (PDs) prepared on nanorod template. Using the nanorods template, it was found that we can effectively suppress leakage current, ultraviolet-to-visible rejection ratio and photoconductive gain of the PDs. With -2 V applied bias, it was found that noise equivalent power (NEP) and normalized detectivity (D *) were 7.00 × 10-10 W and 2.26× 109 cmHz 0.5 W-1, respectively, for the PD prepared on nanorods template. With the same -2 V bias, it was found that NEP and D * were 3.56 × 10-6 W and 4.44× 105 cmHz 0.5W-1, respectively, for the PD prepared on a conventional sapphire substrate.
