This paper describes the effect of an interfacial biaxial stress field on the dislocation formation dynamics during epitaxial growth of nitrides on Si(110). The anisotropic mismatch stress between a 2-fold symmetry Si(110) atomic plane and the AlN basal plane of 6-fold symmetry may be relaxed through the creation of additional characteristic dislocations, as proposed by Ruiz-Zepeda et al. with Burgers vectors: b= 1/2 and b= , ±60° from . The dislocations generated under such a biaxial stress field appear annihilating more efficiently with increasing thickness, leading to high-quality nitride epilayers on Si(110) for improved quantum efficiency of InGaN/GaN quantum wells.
