GaN being ≈ 15-nm thick membranes and nanoperforated in an ordered fashion were fabricated using direct writing of negative charges by focused ion beam and subsequent photoelectrochemical etching of GaN epilayers. The characterization of the photoelectrical properties shows that both continuous and nanoperforated membranes exhibit pronounced persistent photoconductivity (PPC) which can be optically quenched under excitation by 546-nm radiation via impurity levels. We found that optical quenching of PPC occurs also under relatively intense intrinsic excitation of nanoperforated membranes by 355-nm radiation at temperatures T < 100 K. The results are explained by taking into account strong surface localization of charge carriers in nanoperforated membranes and UV-induced reactions occurring at the surface states under intense intrinsic excitation.
