Abstract : The report describes progress made toward the synthesis of GaN thin films from chemical vapor deposition using the organometallic source triethylgallium monammine (Ga(C2H5)3.NH3). Work is reported on reflection electron diffraction and transmission electron diffraction measurements, along with preliminary scanning electron microscopy results. Problems related to oxygen contamination are discussed and their influence on Hall effect measurements are presented. Also discussed is the problem of reactant decomposition. (Author)
