Summary A solid-state displacement reaction of Ga2O3 with Mg3N2 has been used to synthesize GaN nanocrystals by mechanochemical processing. X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and selected area electron diffraction (SAED) measurements indicated that the nanocrystals had a hexagonal structure and sizes ranging from 4 to 20thinspnm. Optical absorption and transmission measurement showed the bandgap of the nanocrystals was consistent with that of bulk GaN samples (3.43thinspeV). This study  demonstrates that mechanochemical processing has significant potential for the synthesis of GaN nanocrystals in a simple and efficient way.
