Defects induced by electron irradiation in thick free-standing GaN layers grown by halide vapor phase epitaxy were studied by deep level transient spectroscopy. In as-grown materials, six electron traps, labeled D2 (E-C-0.24 eV), D3 (E-C-0.60 eV), D4 (E-C-0.69 eV), D5 (E-C-0.96 eV), D7 (E-C-1.19 eV), and D8, were observed. After 2MeV electron irradiation at a fluence of 1 x 10(14) cm(-2), three deep electron traps, labeled D1 (E-C-0.12 eV), D5I (E-C-0.89 eV), and D6 (E-C-1.14 eV), were detected. The trap D1 has previously been reported and considered as being related to the nitrogen vacancy. From the annealing behavior and a high introduction rate, the D5I and D6 centers are suggested to be related to primary intrinsic defects.
