Optical Properties for ZnSe Epilayer Obtained From Photoluminescience Measurement


Article Preview

The ZnSe epilayers were grown on the GaAs substrate by hot wall epitaxy. After the ZnSe epilayers treated in the vacuum-, Zn-, and Se-atmosphere, respectively. The defects of the epilayer were investigated by means of the low-temperature photoluminescence measurement. The dominant peaks at 2.7988 eV and 2.7937 eV obtained from the PL spectrum of the as-grown ZnSe epilayer were found to be consistent with the upper and the lower polariton peak of the exciton, I2 (Do, X), bounded to the neutral donor associated with the Se-vacancy. This donorimpurity binding energy was calculated to be 25.3 meV. The exciton peak, I1 d, at 2.7812 eV was confirmed to be bound to the neutral acceptor corresponded with the Zn-vacancy.
