Temperature dependence of dislocation rosettes size growth in p-GaN has been investigated. It is shown that the star-of-David-like rosettes form in p-GaN even at room temperature while in n-GaN such rosettes are formed only at temperatures exceeding 573 K. The activation energy for the dislocation glide was estimated as 450 ± 100 meV, which is lower than 720 ± 160 meV in n-GaN. Cathodoluminescence study reveals a decrease of 3.28 and 3.2 eV peak intensities in dislocated region.
