High-quality ZnO rods were formed directly on sapphire (0001) substrates by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. The rods exhibited free exciton and very sharp bound exciton emissions at low temperatures. By increasing the excitation intensity, biexciton emission was observed. Temperature dependence of the emission spectra suggested that the emission peak at ∼3.315 eV, which had been attributed to neutral acceptor-bound exciton emission, is due to donor-acceptor pairs. The acceptor binding energy was determined to be about 107 meV, which agrees well with that estimated from a hydrogen-atom-like acceptor model. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    Thin layers of ZnO were grown on (0001) oriented sapphire by organometallic chemical vapor deposition. Low-temperature photoluminescence indicates that near-band-edge luminescence dominates the spectrum. In contrast to bulk grown material deep level luminescence for the layers is relatively weak.
