Ion implantation into III-V nitride materials is an important technology for high-power and high-temperature digital and monolithic microwave integrated circuits. We report the results of the electrical, optical, and surface morphology of Si ion-implanted GaN films using furnace annealing. We demonstrate high sheet-carrier densities for relatively low-dose (natoms = 5×1014 cm-2) Si implants into AlN/GaN/sapphire heteroepitaxial films. The samples that were annealed at 1150 °C in N2 for 5 min exhibited a smooth surface morphology and a sheet electron concentration ns to approximately 9.0×1013 cm-2, corresponding to an estimated 19% electrical activation and a 38% Si donor activation in GaN films grown on sapphire substrates. Variable-temperature Hall-effect measurements indicate a Si donor ionization energy approximately 15 meV.
