Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Real-time spectra of Ga deposited on GaN collected every second for (a) , (b) , and (c) of the total deposition time. Note the redshifting, narrowing plasmon resonance, and the emergence of a second, high-energy mode for (c).

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Comparison of equivalent thicknesses of 96 and 325 ML of Ga on GaN. The final spectra (a) reveal that the longitudinal mode of the 325 ML deposition is redshifted with respect to the 96 ML. A transverse mode is observed for the 325 ML sample. AFM images (b) and (c) reveal the redshifted plasmon modes correlate to increased average particle size of the equivalently thicker deposition. Histograms show single mode distribution of particle heights.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Oxidation of Ga particles redshifts the transverse mode while the longitudinal mode is relatively unaffected.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Final spectra of 276 and 187 ML equivalent thicknesses of In deposited on GaN (a). AFM images confirm that the larger average particle size (b) and (c) results in the redshifting of the resonance.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Kinetic spectra of Al deposited on GaN reveal a resonance feature which redshifts and narrows with increasing deposition time and gradually approaches Drude-like behavior (a). Tilted SEM image (b) measured at 45° reveals that the surface is a nearly fully coalesced thin Al film.
