The miniband structure of a quantum dot lattice based on GaN/AlN nanowire arrays has been investigated using the finite element method and Floquet theorem. The quantum dot modes and the quantum wire modes in the nanowire arrays were graphically verified. The optimum geometries of GaN/AlN quantum wire arrays were investigated by using a correlation between the width of nanowires and the separation of the minibandgap which is to be larger than the thermal energy at room temperature.
