Information on the electronic structures of the gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires and thin films was obtained by employing x-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) and scanning photoelectron microscopy (SPEM). The apparent depression of the SPEM intensity for the nanowires was not interpreted as a decrease of the density of valence-band states. The transition probabilities were enhanced in the nanowires.
