We studied the effect of nitridation condition of Mo foil on the properties of GaN nanorods grown by laser molecular beam epitaxy. It is found that randomly size-distributed three-dimensional GaN islands were grown on bare Mo foil at growth temperature of 700. Upon nitridation of Mo foil with low nitrogen plasma flux, hexagonally-faceted inverse-tapered GaN nanorods were grown whereas tapered GaN nanorods were obtained for Mo foil nitridated under high nitrogen plasma flux. Using wet-chemical etching process, it is deduced that the inverse-tapered GaN nanorods have N-polarity while the tapered GaN nanorods have Ga-polarity. Optical analysis revealed that the inverse-tapered GaN nanorods have prominent near band edge (NBE) emission peak with negligible defect-related peaks whereas tapered GaN nanorods possess yellow luminescence peak along with NBE emission. The control of polarity of GaN nanords on flexible metal foils by tuning pre-nitridation condition is beneficial for futuristic nitride-based flexible opto-electronics devices.
