Topic: Interdisciplinary Studies on Wide Gap Semiconductors/Oxides, Nano-Structures and LEDs
Abstract: Energy-efficient and environmentally friendly solid-state light sources, in particular GaN-based light emitting diodes (LEDs), are currently revolutionizing an increasing number of applications, and bring apparent benefits to vast areas of development, such as lighting, communications, biotechnology, imaging, and medicine[1,2]. Research and developments (R&D) on III-nitrides are rapidly proceeding to DUV field. Also, other advanced semiconductors/oxides, including SiC, ZnO, Ga2O3 and related Nano-scale/nano-structured materials are causing more R&D interests and efforts. I’d like to share with you for our research accomplishments within recent 3-years, with following issues: Laboratory building up with 8-sets optical/laser spectroscopic systems. able to perform all wide spectral and temperature variable measurements of Spectroscopic Ellipsometry (SE), Raman (visible & DUV-UV), photoluminescence (PL), time-resolved PL (TRPL), PL excitation (PLE), absorption (ABS), NIR-IR PL, all with variable temperature (VT) 10-300K or 77-870K, in combined with Synchrotron X-ray absorption (XAS), Rutherford backscattering (RBS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to study in depth on modern optoelectronic and nano/quantum materials. We’ve published >50 SCI J-papers since 2015-now. Significant research outputs are described briefly, especially some Key outputs within 2018-20 for nano-structured AlN, Ga2O3, ZnO, ZnCrO4, and InGaN/GaN/ZnO. Also, multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with 1-3 nm well size and 4-8 nm barriers for LEDs, such as DUV AlGaN MQWs, InGaN/GaN MQWs & QDs, are emphasized. It’s hopeful that more discussions, especially on some unsolved/challenging research items, the combination of theory-experiments and interdisciplinary research, could lead to penetrate fundamental concepts and properties, to promote research in related fields, and to develop good collaborations in the national/world range.
