Molecular-beam-epitaxy growth of Eu-doped GaN quantum dots embedded in AlN has been achieved. The crucial issue of Eu location has been addressed by extended x-ray absorption fine structure measurements. By comparing the signature of the Eu short-range environment for several samples, it is concluded that Eu is mostly incorporated in GaN dots. Intense cathodoluminescence associated with Eu has been measured, with no GaN bandedge emission, evidence that carrier recombination mostly occurs through rare-earth ion excitation. Persistent photoluminescence of Eu-doped GaN quantum dots as a function of the temperature is suggested to be further confirmation of the recombination of confined carriers through Eu ion excitation. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    A comparison is presented between Eu implanted and Eu in situ doped GaN thin films showing that two predominant Eu sites are optically active around 620 nm in both types of samples with below and above bandgap excitation. One of these sites, identified as a Ga substitutional site, is common to...

    The dependence of glass viscosity on the growth of semiconductor (CdS) quantum dots in borosilicate glass matrices is studied systematically. The glass viscosity was varied (3000-260 000 Pa s) by varying the glass compositions of constituent oxides and growth temperatures. Thus, grown dot sizes...
