This paper presents a review of recent advances of Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Zinc Oxide (ZnO) based hybrid structures materials and devices. GaN and ZnO have gained substantial interest in the research area of wide bandgap semiconductors due to their unique electrical, optical and structural properties. GaN and ZnO are important semiconductor materials with applications in blue and ultraviolet (UV) optoelectronics. Both materials have similar physical properties. GaN and ZnO as hybrid material have received much attention due to their unique potential applications. Several potential optical applications are being fabricated based on GaN and ZnO hybrid materials such as optical wave guide, light emitting diodes (LEDs), and laser diodes (LDs). The recent aspects of GaN and ZnO hybrid based devices are presented and discussed.
