A drastic change of the Ag growth mode on the bulk-terminated GaN(0001) surface, from Stranski-Krastanov (SK) growth at a low Ag flux to layer-by-layer growth at a high flux was observed. An approach was demonstrated to obtain a flat epitaxial Ag film on the GaN(0001) surface, using the high Ag flux. An unreconstructed Ag-terminated GaN(0001)-1×1 surface was also obtained by annealing the Ag film-covered GaN(0001) surface.
