Suitable nitrogen sources for AlN solution growth were examined. From a theoretical viewpoint, it is speculated that Li3N is suitable for AlN solution growth because the free energy of Li3N formation is larger than that of AlN formation. Nitrogen atoms seem to be transferred from Li3N to Al to form AlN. We performed AlN solution growth using Al and Li3N under an atmospheric pressure of N2. We confirmed the formation of AlN by X-ray diffraction measurement and Raman spectroscopy.
