Abstract:

A narrow-band and widely tunable Optical Parametric Oscillator laser system has been acquired and installed during the performance period of this HBCU-infrastructure award. The laser system has been incorporated in the development of a new high-resolution photoluminescence excitation setup. Initial spectroscopic studies of several novel photonic materials have been carried out GaNEr and GaNEu. The initial results have been presented at several conferences and a first manuscript of research results is in preparation. The new instrumentation has been incorporated in the training of undergraduate and graduate students seeking B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in physics and related disciplines. In addition, the instrumentation has been implemented in research projects for students participating in summer outreach programs.
