First-Principles Calculations for Electronic Structures of Flourine-Doped ZnO


Article Preview

The formation energy and electronic structures of Fluorine-doped ZnO have been calculated by the first principles. The calculated results show that Fi, which is easier to form under O-rich conditions, is helpful to achieve p-type ZnO. The main contribution of accept level are the hybridization between F(2p),O (2p) and Zn(3d) states which are near the top of the valence band.
