ENHANCEMENT OF EXCITON EMISSION FROM ZnO NANOCRYSTALLINE FILMS BY PULSED LASER ANNEALING

Pulsed ArF laser annealing in air and in hydrogen atmosphere improves the optical properties of ZnO nanostructured films. Independently on the ambient atmosphere, laser annealing produces two major effects on the photoluminescence (PL) spectra: first, the efficiency of the exciton PL increases due to decrease of the number of non-radiative recombination… CONTINUE READING
