20 August 2009 Synthesis and characterization of electrospun gallium nitride nanofibers

The simple and inexpensive technique of electrospinning was used for the production of long GaN nanofibers. The fibers were made using a precursor solution composed of pure Gallium Nitrate dissolved in dimethylacetamide (DMA) and a viscous solution of Cellulose acetate dissolved in a mixture of DMA and acetone. Using a tube furnace, they were sintered under a Nitrogen atmosphere to decompose the polymer and to reduce Oxygen contamination. This process was followed by sintering under a NH3 flow to complete the synthesis of wurtzite GaN. XRD, ESEM, and FTIR analysis were used to verify the chemical and structural composition of the samples. The I-V characteristics of a device constructed using a single GaN nanofiber showed the formation of ohmic contacts.
