ABSTRACT
Green light emission has been directly obtained from Er-doped GaN powder. Er is incorporated into GaN powder through the reaction between molten (Ga+Er) and NH3 at 950–1050 °C using Bi as a wetting agent. Photoexcitation with an Ar laser results in strong green emissions from two narrow lines at 537 and 558 nm, which are identified as Er transitions from the 2H11/2 and 4S3/2 levels to the 4I15/2 ground state. Microprobe analysis reveals that Er atoms are distributed across powder particles.
