In this paper, we report on the growth by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), the fabrication and the characterization of GaN diodes on HVPE n+-GaN/sapphire and ELO-HVPE n+-GaN/sapphire substrates. Specifically, such diodes were fabricated in the form of vertical schottky diodes or p-n junctions. In both cases we have seen a dramatic decrease in the leakage current in the reverse direction which is consistent with the reduction of threading dislocations in the active area of the device. The lowest leakage current measured at -5 V bias was approximately 10-8 A/cm2 for p-n junctions grown on ELO-HVPE n+-GaN/sapphire substrates. The spectral response of the vertical schottky diodes were evaluated and compared to similar devices grown wholely by MBE on sapphire substrates. The device grown on HVPE n+-GaN/sapphire substrate shows nearly ideal responsivity below 355 nm but also poorer visible light rejection than the fully grown MBE device. The observed exponential tail in the spectral response of the vertical schottky grown on the HVPE n+-GaN/sapphire substrate is attributed to the absorption and collection in the thick n+ GaN substrate.
