    Abstract

    Excitonic photoluminescence (PL) peaks from hexagonal GaN epilayers were investigated making a connection with the analysis of the photoreflectance spectra. Free exciton emissions associated with transitions from the conduction (Γ7c) band to the A (Γ9v) and B (Γ7uv) valence bands are dominant above 100 K. Values of the full widths at half maximum of them were smaller than the thermal energy kBT up to room temperature, which suggests the dominance of excitons in the PL spectra
