The low decomposition temperature of InN and relatively high thermal stability of NH3 necessitate
the use of a high NH3/TMIn ratio to prevent In droplet formation on the surface. This work shows
that the addition of Cl in the form of HCl Cl/In molar ratio range of 0.31.4 to the growth chamber
allows the growth of high quality InN films without the formation of a second In phase at a very low
value of the N/In molar inlet ratio 2500 . Photoluminescence spectra in the temperature range of
144 to 4.5 K showed a broad spectral band with a cutoff energy close to the reported minimum of
the InN band gap energy 0.65 eV . 2007 American Institute of Physics.

Until recently, interest in indium nitride InN was
mainly derived from its role as a dilute component for en-
hancing emission efficiency of GaxIn1-xN and AlxIn1-xN ac-
tive layers in optoelectronic devices.15
