Growth of Ga-doped ZnO by pulsed laser deposition at 200 °C in an ambient of Ar and H2produces a resistivity of 1.5 × 10−4 Ω-cm, stable to 500 °C. The resistivity can be further reduced to 1.2 × 10−4 Ω-cm by annealing on Zn foil, which reduces the compensating Zn-vacancy acceptor concentration NA to 5 × 1019 cm−3, only 3% of the Ga-donor concentration ND of 1.6 × 1021 cm−3, with ND and NA determined from a degenerate mobility theory. The plasmon-resonance wavelength is only 1060 nm, further bridging ...

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 ...


Electron-Irradiation-Induced Deep Level In N-Type Gan, Z-Q. Fang, Joseph W. Hemsky, David C. Look, M. P. Mack Jan 1998

Deep-level transient spectroscopy measurements of n-type GaN epitaxial layers irradiated with 1-MeV electrons reveal an irradiation-induced electron trap at EC−0.18 eV. The production rate is approximately 0.2 cm−1, lower than the rate of 1 cm−1 found for the N vacancy by Hall-effect studies. The defect trap cannot be firmly identified at this time. ©1998 American Institute of Physics.
