Local structural information for the first two atomic shells surrounding Ga atoms in free standing AlₓGa₁ˍₓN alloy films has been obtained by extended x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy. For an AlN mole fraction ranging from 0 to 0.6, we found that the first shell Ga–N bond length had only a weak composition dependence, roughly one quarter of that predicted by Vegard’s Law. In the second shell, the Ga–Ga bond length was significantly longer than that of Ga–Al (Δ∼0.04–0.065 Å). A...[Show more]
