Fabrication of transparent glass-ceramics containing ZnO nanocrystallites has been reported. The obtained material shows UV-excited photoluminescence consisting of both broad emission in the visible region and the free exciton emission at 3.28 eV. Since the observed emission depends on the precipitated state of ZnO in the glass matrix, the glass-ceramics obtained by this way will give an alternative selection of semiconductor material with unique optical and electronic functions.

    We report on the comparative studies of linearly polarized photoluminescence (PL) in a ZnO epitaxial film and ZnO nanorods. At low temperatures the PL spectrum of both samples included a number of narrow lines attributed to donor-bound excitons and a peak of free A excitons. An additional line...

    Reproducible and high quality N-doped ZnO (ZnO:N) films were achieved by a hydrothermal treatment method. The ZnO:N films exhibited p-type characteristics by means of the Hall-effect and the photoluminescence measurements. At room temperature, the electrical properties of ZnO:N film showed a...

    The pressure response of the ultraviolet photoluminescence of ZnO nanocrystallites and MgZnO nanoalloy of composition 15% Mg:85% Zn of the wurtzite structure was studied. The authors found that up to 7 GPa the pressure coefficients of ZnO and MgZnO are 23.6 and 27.1 meV/GPa, respectively. The...

    Nowadays ferromagnetism is often found in potential diluted magnetic semiconductor systems. However, many authors argue that the observed ferromagnetism stems from ferromagnetic precipitates or spinodal decomposition rather than from carrier-mediated magnetic impurities, as required for a...

    The present study focuses on the photoluminescence (PL) properties of ZnO films prepared by the reaction of water and zinc. Temperature-dependent PL characteristics of the ZnO films have been investigated in the range from 15 to 260 K. The PL spectrum at 15 K is dominated by neutral donor-bound...

    We measured the temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) decay time of the mixed system of free exciton (FX) and donor-bound exciton (D0X) in a ZnO thin film. From the measured cw PL spectra, we also calibrated the individual spectral widths and integrated PL intensities of FX and D0X by...

    Transparent conducting Al-doped Zn1-xMgxO thin films were grown on glass substrates by chemical vapor deposition. The resistivity could be lowered to 10-3 Ω cm with optical transmittance above 85% in visible regions. The influence of carrier concentration on band-gap shift in Zn1-xMgxO alloys...
