In this study the effect of hot phosphoric acid treatment on the evolution of microstructures in plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy grown GaN thin films and GaN/AlGaN/GaN heterostructures is investigated. The surface morphology of the as grown samples and chemically treated samples is studied using field emission scanning electron microscopy which reveal the formation of different geometrical microstructures namely dodecagonal pyramids in one sample and hexagonal pits in the other after chemical treatment due to the different polar nature of GaN in both the samples.
