Abstract [en]

The characteristics of intersubband transitions in III-nitride quantum wells are promising for detectors and all-optical switches through a high intrinsic speed (similar to 1 THz), and can also provide a high optical saturation power and a desired small negative chirp parameter in electroabsorption modulators. The high LO-phonon energy allows to improve the operating temperature of THz emitters. Recent achievements and prospects for intersubband III-nitride photonic devices, mainly for lambda=1.55 mu m, are briefly reviewed. Further, means to enhance material quality by achieving crack-free growth of GaN/AlN multiple-quantum-well (MQW) structures, and by employing intersubband transitions in multiple-quantum-disk (MQD) structures incorporated into dislocation free GaN nanocolumns are discussed. We investigate the occurrence of cracks in MBE-grown GaN/AlN MQWs on GaN MOVPE templates with respect to the buffer layer, the number of QWs and the temperature reduction rate after growth. Intersubband absorption in GaN/AlN MQDs in the wavelength range 1.38-1.72 mu m is demonstrated in three samples grown on Si(111).
