The zincblende III-nitrides are possible candidates for replacing the wurtzite phase nitrides in certain applications such as quantum-dot-based devices. Despite their metastable nature, several improvements concerning control and quality have been reported. Free-electron concentrations n above 1020cm−3 are achievable by using Ge as a donor in zincblende GaN and AlGaN. We present a characterization of thin film zincblende GaN, deposited by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy on 3C-SiC/Si substrates in (001) orientation. The complex dielectric functions (DF) in the mid-infrared are obtained by spectroscopic ellipsometry, from which the transverse-optical phonon and plasma frequencies are determined. These results are corroborated by Raman experiments. Utilizing Kane’s model for the band structure in the vicinity of the Γ-point of the Brillouin zone, taking into account many-body effects like band-gap renormalization and Burstein-Moss shift, and the optical effectice electron mass determined by the plasma frequency, an all-optical determination of the free-carrier concentration of zincblende GaN is achieved.
