6 March 2021 Band structures and heterojunction alignment of ScAlN alloy
Author Affiliations +
The band structure and band alignment for ScxAl1-xN /AlN heterojunctions, with Sc-content x up to 25%, are investigated via first principle density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The supercell approach is utilized to build the crystal structure of ScAlN and AlN alloys and we investigate the natural band offsets of ScxAl1-xN relative to AlN through the potential line-up method. Our calculations suggest a type-I ScAlN / GaN heterostructure with large band offsets. The implementation of ScAlN will have impacts for deep ultraviolet, power electronics, and laser devices.
