The optical properties of Mn-Mg-codoped epitaxial GaN were studied. Addition of Mg acceptors quenches the weak manganese-related photoluminescence (Pl) band at 1.3 eV in GaN:Mn and a series of sharp PL peaks are observed at 1 eV in codoped epilayers. The change in PL spectra indicates that the Mg addition stabilizes the Mn4+ charge state by decreasing the Fermi level. The 1 eV PL peaks are tentatively attributed to intracenter transitions involving Mn4+ ions. Spin-allowed 3d-shell 4T2-4T1 transitions and their phonon replicas are involved. The relative intensities of the sharp peaks are strongly dependent on the excitation wavelength, indicating that the optically active Mn4+ centers involved in the separate peaks are different. The temperature dependence of the PL spectrum suggests the presence of at least three distinct Mn4+ complex centers.
