The novel semiconductor wurzite AlPN has never been made before. Since it can be made lattice matched to GaN, it has a great potential to improve electronic and optical devices made from Nitride semiconductors. Since everything is unknown, the unit attempt to clarify its growth on GaN as well as its fundamental properties.
