Abstract

This report describes the first fabrication of GaN p-n junction diodes on free-standing GaN substrates with a 3mm diameter. For the diode of 3 mm in diameter, the specific on-resistance and the breakdown voltage was 124 mΩ·cm 2 (at 4.0 V) and -450 V, respectively. Consequently, combination of materials used and device processing revealed a record fabricated device size with a high breakdown voltage and low forward leakage current in GaN vertical diodes.
