Cubic gallium nitride epilayers were successfully doped with carbon using an e-beam evaporation source. Room
temperature Hall measurements revealed hole concentrations up to 6 Â 1017
and hole mobilities of 200 cm2
/V s.
Low temperature (2 K) photoluminescence showed a donor­acceptor transition at 3.08 eV, which could clearly be
assigned to the incorporation of a carbon acceptor. Thermal activation measurements were performed. They exhibited
an activation energy of EA ¼ 215 meV both in photoluminescence and electrical measurements, respectively. r 2001

1. Introduction
Gallium nitride (GaN) and GaN-based ternaries are
semiconductors currently in the focus of both scientific
and industrial research. Due to their large band gap they
are well-suited for a wide range of applications, e.g. as
