We show a flux dependence changes in structural, optical and electronic properties of InxGa1-xN nanostructures (NSs) namely nanocolumns (NCs), nanoflakes (NFs) and nanowall network (NWN) grown directly on Si(111) surface. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) images were recorded to see morphological changes from NFs to NCs and NWNc etc, while high-resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD) omega - 2 theta scans were used to determine In incorporation. The maximum In incorporation was observed to be 20, 33 and 38% for the sharp transition from NFs to NCs and NWNs, respectively. The charge carrier dynamics of these grown NSs were probed using Ultrafast Femtosecond Transient Absorption Spectroscopy (UFTAS) with excitation at 350 nm pump wavelength. The UFTAS studies show the comparative charge carriers dynamics of the NWS, NCs and NFs. The charge carrier studies show a higher lifetime in NWNs as compare to NCs and NFs. Further, to examine electronic structure and level of degeneracy of these NSs, core-level and valence band spectra were analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), which manifest the upward band bending ranging from 0.2 eV to 0.4 eV.
