To study the quality of thin metal/ZnO Schottky contacts (SCs), temperature-dependent current-voltage (I-V), capacitance-voltage, deep level transient spectroscopy, and photoluminescence measurements were performed using bulk, vapor-phase ZnO, treated by remote oxygen plasma (ROP). Au/ZnO and Pd/ZnO contacts on both O and Zn faces are compared as a function of the ROP processing sequence and duration. We find that (i) as the duration of ROP treatment increases from 2 to 4 h, Au/ZnO contacts on the Zn face, deposited before ROP treatment, become rectifying, while those on the O face remain Ohmic; (ii) with long-term ROP ...

Clean ZnO (0001) Zn- and (000(/1)) O-polar surfaces and metal interfaces have been systematically studied by depth-resolved cathodoluminescence spectroscopy, photoluminescence, current-voltage and capacitance-voltage measurements, and deep level transient spectroscopy. Zn-face shows higher near band edge emission and lower near surface defect emission. Even with remote plasma decreases of the 2.5 eV near surface defect emission, (0001)-Zn face emission quality still exceeds that of (000(/1))-O face. The two polar surfaces and corresponding metal interfaces also present very different luminescence evolution under low-energy electron beam irradiation. Ultrahigh vacuum-deposited Au and Pd diodes on as-received and O2 ...

In was implanted into bulk ZnO creating a square profile with a thickness of about 100 nm and an In concentration of about 1×1020 cm-3. The layer was analyzed with Rutherford backscattering, temperature-dependent Hall effect, and low-temperature photoluminescence measurements. The implantation created a nearly degenerate carrier concentration n of about 2×1019 cm-3, but with a very low mobility μ, increasing from about 0.06 cm2/V s at 20 K to about 2 cm2/V s at 300 K. However, after annealing at 600 °C for 30 min, n increased to about ...

Ga-Related Photoluminescence Lines In Ga-Doped Zno Grown By Plasma-Assisted Molecular-Beam Epitaxy, Z. Yang, David C. Look, J. L. Liu

Low-temperature photoluminescence (PL) and temperature-dependent Hall-effect (T-Hall) measurements were carried out in undoped and Ga-doped ZnO thin films grown by molecular-beam epitaxy. As the carrier concentration increases from 1.8×1018 to 1.8×1020 cm−3, the dominant PL line at 9 K changes from I1 (3.368–3.371 eV) to IDA (3.317–3.321 eV), and finally to I8 (3.359 eV). The dominance of I1, due to ionized-donor bound excitons, is unexpected in n-type samples but is shown to be consistent with the T-Hall results. We ...

ZnO micro-structures and nano-structures have been grown on two types of substrate by reacting condensed Zn vapor with oxygen. The source material was either pure zinc powder or zinc acetate which was either evaporated or decomposed. This was done in the temperature range 500 C to 650 C, in a flowing Ar plus oxygen ambient at atmospheric pressure. Variations in the carrier gas composition, gas flow rate and the position of the substrate in the furnace were found to control the formation and the morphology of the nanostructures. Scanning electron microscopy images of samples grown from a Zn powder source ...

We have investigated the structural and optical properties of Ga-doped ZnO films grown on GaN templates by plasma-assisted molecular-beam epitaxy. The carrier concentration in Ga-doped ZnO films can be controlled from 1.33×1018/cm3 to 1.13×1020/cm3. Despite high Ga incorporation, the linewidth of (0002) ω-rocking curves of Ga-doped ZnO films still lies in the range from 5 to 15 arc min. Photoluminescence (PL) spectra of Ga-doped ZnO films show dominant near-bandedge emission with negligibly weak deep-level emission, independent of carrier concentration. The PL spectrum exhibits a new emission line at 3.358 ...
