Abstract

The optical and structural properties of ZnO/MgZnO superlattices were investigated by transmission electron microscope, transmission measurement and photoluminescence. The uncoupled wells ranged in thickness from ∼ 30 Å to 75 Å Modulation of the Mg content was observed in Z-contrast TEM indicating the alloy composition was periodic. The density of stacking faults in the superlattice was extremely high, however the photoluminescence in the narrowest well case was blue shifted, and substantially brighter than comparable bulk layers of ZnO and MgZnO indicating that the emission was enhanced. Excitonic features were observed in the optical absorption spectra and also revealed that diffusion of Mg from the barrier layers into the well was occurring.
