Wurtzite GaN epilayers bombarded at 300 K with 200 MeV ¹⁹⁷Au¹⁶⁺ ions are studied by a combination of transmission electron microscopy(TEM) and Rutherford backscattering/channeling spectrometry (RBS/C). Results reveal the formation of near-continuous tracks propagating throughout the entire ∼1.5-μm-thick GaN film. These tracks, ∼100 Å in diameter, exhibit a large degree of structural disordering but do not appear to be amorphous. Throughout the bombarded epilayer, high-resolution TEM reveals...[Show more]
