The formation of p-type GaN film is a key technology in developing optoelectronic devices. P-type doping (concentration ∼ 1017 cm-3) has been achieved in grown GaN by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) with Mg (CP2Mg) doping. The Hall measurement results indicate that Mg diffused GaN films also have p-type conductivity with carrier concentration about 1017 cm-3 and a mobility of 10 cm2 V-1 s-1. For the as-grown Mg-doped GaN, the room temperature photoluminescence (PL) spectra show a blue emission peak around 420-450 nm, and the spectral peak depends on the carrier concentrations. For Mg-diffused GaN, the PL spectra shows only a broad violet emission for samples diffused at 900-1100°C.
