Abstract:

During the project period, we have investigated the optical properties of III-nitride heterostructures and quantum wells and provided input for the improvement of materials quality, understanding of impurity properties, and optimization of device design. We were the first group to observe the persistent photoconductivity PPC effect in p-type GaN epilayers and in AlGaNGaN heterostructures and utilized PPC effect to study the impurity properties in these materials. We were also one of the first few research groups to employ picosecond time-resolved photoluminescence PL measurement technique to study mechanisms of optical transitions, LED emission, and lasing in GaN and related materials.
