Positron beam study on vacancy defects in GaCrN grown by molecular beam epitaxy

Vacancy defects in GaCrN grown by molecular beam epitaxy have been characterized by energy variable positron beam. Both positron lifetime and the Doppler broadening of annihilation $$gamma$$ ray (DBAR) measurements show that the GaCrN film grown at low 540$$^{circ}$$C contains vacancy defects. The observed vacancy defects are identified as eight-vacancy clusters. Although the Si doping reduces such vacancy clusters probably due to the occupation of Ga sites, another type of vacancy defects still survives. From the detailed theoretical calculation, the residual vacancy defects are attributable to SiGa-VN complexes.
