Abstract:

The study focused on providing an explanation for the puzzling increase in the resistivity of the ZnSe alloys doped with nitrogen as the bandgap energy increased. When laser diodes are fabricated at wavelengths which move them further into the blue. it was found that the electrical performance tends to degrade by an apparent increase in the resistivity of the wider bandgap constituents.
