We report on the successful incorporation of arsenic (As) in GaN during metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). A characteristic room-temperature luminescence band centered around 2.6 eV (480 nm), similar to the peak position of the As ion-implanted GaN, is found to be related to the As impurity in the MOCVD grown GaN:As films. The arsenic incorporation efficiency as a function of experimental conditions and structure is presented. Temperature- and power-dependent cathodoluminescence measurements have been performed to help establish the nature of the As-related peak.
