Abstract : This contract involves investigating the efficacy of atomic layer an molecular beam epitaxy techniques for the growth of Gallium Nitride (a wide direct bandgap semiconductor). During this reporting period the Atomic Layer Epitaxy Molecular Beam Epitaxy apparatus was designed and will be ready for construction in mid-July. An interim rf discharge nitrogen source was designed, constructed and used for initial growth experiments. A microwave power supply and resonance cavity have been ordered because recently acquired information indicates this may produce more reactive nitrogen. Keywords: Gallium Nitride film, Atomic layer epitaxy, Semiconductors.
