FIG. 1.

Schematic view of the studied structure for different boundary conditions. (a) The GaN slab is sandwiched between two electrodes connected to a voltage source. (b) The GaN slab is sandwiched between two electrodes in open-circuit conditions. (c) The GaN slab is sandwiched between two charged electrodes. The sign convention with respect to the [0001] direction of GaN is shown in the legend for all cases. Red up arrows apply for positive bias, whereas blue down arrows apply for negative bias [see panels (a) and (c)]. Thus, the sign of the spontaneous polarization with respect to z is negative for and positive for (note that is opposite to [0001] in the latter case), whereas for pointing down in the figure.

Dependence of strain on thickness and applied voltage under constant-E conditions for a GaN slab. (a) In-plane strain without including the electrostatic force correction . (b) Out-of-plane strain for . (c) including the electrostatic force correction . (d) for . (e) comparison between and as a function of the electric field intensity. (f) Dependence of the Poisson’s ratio and the effective piezoelectric coefficient on the electric field intensity.

FIG. 3.

Dependence of the out-of-plane strain on thickness and applied voltage under constant-E conditions for an in-plane GaN slab constrained to (a) (compressive) and (b) to (tensile).

FIG. 4.

Capacitance of a GaN slab as a function of applied voltage at different film thicknesses. The upper panel shows the capacitance for a 1 nm-thick GaN slab, whereas the lower panel shows the capacitance for a 10 nm-thick GaN slab. In both cases, the capacitance is obtained for unconstrained and compressive constrainted conditions. Black (red) lines correspond to the calculations (without) including the electrostatic force correction, i.e., . The maximum relative variation in capacitance in the displayed range between unconstrained and constrained results is also shown for comparison. Red color online corresponds to gray in the printed version.
