A numerical and experimental study has been performed to characterize the metal organic vapor-phase epitaxy (MOVPE) growth of multi-quantum-wells. One of the major objectives of the present study is to predict the optimal operating conditions that would be suitable for the fabrication of GaN-based light-emitting diodes using three different reactors, vertical, horizontal, and planetary. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations considering gas-phase chemical reactions and surface chemistry were carried out and compared with experimental measurements. Through a lot of CFD simulations, the database for the multiparametric dependency of indium incorporation and growth rate in layers has been established in a wide range of growth conditions. Also, a heating system using radio frequency power was verified to obtain the uniform temperature distribution by simulating the electromagnetic field as well as gas flow fields. The present multidisciplinary approach has been applied to the development of a novel-concept MOVPE system as well as performance enhancement of existing commercial reactors.
