The synthesis and characterization of GaN and Ga1-xMnxN layers are reported. The layers were prepared by the modified Sublimation Sandwich Method (SSM). The GaN layers having a current maximum size of 200 mm thickness (10 mm x 10 mm area), and Ga1-xMnxN layers of 60 mm thickness (10mm x 10mm area) were obtained. Characterizations of the materials were performed using following methods: atomic force microscopy (AFM), Raman spectroscopy, electron microprobe, secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Electron probe measurements found the Ga1-xMnxN layers containing 4%at Mn. AFM studies showed that the GaN RMS roughness was found to increase with increasing of thickness. Raman investigations supported the conclusion on the well ordered structure of the prepared layers. SIMS measurements were accomplished in order to check the manganese concentration, as well as distribution of gallium, nitrogen and impurities - such as hydrogen, carbon, oxygen and silicon.
