Abstract

The future of solid-state lighting can be potentially driven by applications of InGaN/GaN core-shell nanowires. These heterostructures provide the possibility for fine-tuning of functional properties by controlling a strain state between mismatched layers. We present a nondestructive study of a single 400 nm-thick InGaN/GaN core-shell nanowire using two-dimensional (2D) X-ray Bragg ptychography (XBP) with a nanofocused X-ray beam. The XBP reconstruction enabled the determination of a detailed three-dimensional (3D) distribution of the strain in the particular nanowire using a model based on finite element method. We observed the strain induced by the lattice mismatch between the GaN core and InGaN shell to be in the range from -0.1% to 0.15% for an In concentration of 30%. The maximum value of the strain component normal to the facets was concentrated at the transition region between the main part of the nanowire and the GaN tip. In addition, a variation in misfit strain relaxation between the axial growth and in-plane directions was revealed.
