Red and red/blue cathodoluminescence in the temperature range 12 to 300 K was obtained from single- and polycrystal cubic boron nitride bulk samples implanted with europium and annealed under high-temperature, high-pressure conditions. All observed radiative intra-4f electron transitions of Eu3+ can be assigned to transitions starting from the 5D0 level of Eu3+. Additionally, radiative 4fN-15d→4fN electron transitions related to Eu2+ were detected in the polycrystal c-BN specimens. The higher-resolution Stark level as well as the time-resolved cathodoluminescence spectroscopy suggest that the Eu ions occupy at least two different sites in the c-BN host. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    The effects of the growth temperature and thickness of AlN layer on the electroluminescence (EL) performance of n-ZnO/AlN/p-GaN devices have been systematically investigated. It is found that the higher growth temperature of AlN layer (TAlN) may facilitate the improvement of EL performance of...

    Visible room-temperature photoluminescence (PL) was observed from hydrogen-free nanostructured amorphous carbon films deposited by pulsed laser ablation in different background pressures of argon (PAr). By varying PAr from 5 to 340 mTorr, the film morphology changed from smooth to rough and at...

    The low decomposition temperature of InN and relatively high thermal stability of NH3 necessitate the use of a high NH3/TMIn ratio to prevent In droplet formation on the surface. This work shows that the addition of Cl in the form of HCl (Cl/In molar ratio range of 0.3–1.4) to the growth...
