For transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies, cross–sectional specimens of Ga
nanoparticle (NP) arrays on GaN surfaces were prepared by ion milling followed by lift-out
processing in a FEI Helios Nanolab 650 FIB. The sample was then mounted on a Mo grid and
ion polished to ~ 100 nm. TEM imaging and selected area diffraction (SAD) were carried out in
a JEOL 3011 operating at 300 kV.
Figure 1 presents (a) a bright-field TEM image and corresponding selected area diffraction
(SAD) patterns collected from (b) a FIB-patterned Ga NP and (c) the GaN substrate, in the
vicinity of the Ga NP. The SAD pattern from the Ga NP, shown in Fig. 1(b), presents a diffuse
ring corresponding to a mean interatomic distance of 2.79 Å, similar to the first nearest neighbor
Ga separation reported for α-Ga, 2.78 Å.1 For the GaN region, Fig. 1(c) reveals a single crystal

pattern with R1/R2 = 1.778 and θR1-R2 = 90°, similar to the [ 1 100] zone axis of a-plane wurtzite
GaN, with R(11 2 0)/R(0001) = 1.779 and θ(11 2 0)-(0001) = 90°.2
