Growth of nonpolar and semi-polar GaN and GaN-based structures offers the opportunity to reduce quantum confined Stark effect and possibly increase indium incorporation, as compared to polar structures, for enhanced performance in green and longer wavelength light emitters. However, the development of the nonpolar and semi-polar GaN growth is hampered by the lack of suitable substrates. Silicon, despite its large thermal-expansion and lattice mismatch with GaN, provides the advantages of the availability of large-size wafers with high crystalline quality at low cost, good electrical conductivity, and feasibility of its removal through chemical etching for better light extraction and heat transfer. In this article, we overview the recent progress in epitaxial growth of nonpolar and semi-polar GaN-based structures on patterned Si substrates. Also discussed are structural and optical properties of the resulting material.
