    A strong analogy is demonstrated between the well-known impurity complex NN[sub 1] in GaP consisting of a pair of nearest-neighbor isovalent nitrogen impurity atoms in the nitrogen-doped gallium phosphide lattice (GaP:N), and the divacancy complex of nearest-neighbor vacancies in the nitrogen...

    A temperature-insensitive photoluminescence in the peak position is observed below 150 K in a multi-quantum well structure constructed with AlGaN/GaN, which has a built-in bi-axial stress at the interfaces. This phenomenon is explained by the competition of the effects of the bi-axial stress and...

    Carrier localization in InGaN/GaN multiple-quantum wells (MQWs) with three different well thicknesses was investigated optically using time-integrated and time-resolved microphotoluminescence spectroscopy. An anomalous temperature dependence of the photoluminescence peak energy was observed, as...

    We present the Stark energy sublevels of Nd3+ ions in GaN grown by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy as determined by luminescence spectra. We correlate the photoluminescence spectra with transitions from the 4F3/2 excited state to the 4I9/2, 4I11/2, and 4I13/2 multiplets of the Nd3+ ion...

    The use of III-V and semiconductor nitrides in solar cells has been of interest in the PV-community due to the wide variation range of the band gap in these materials. Particularly, the processing of hetero-junction structures of InGaN/GaN and Si(p)/GaN(n) has been of great interest recently. In...

    GaN epitaxial layers with different crystalline quality grown on sapphire substrates by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition are investigated using time-resolved photoluminescence at 300 K.
