Luminescence Properties of Yb- and Nd- Implanted CdS

  • A. K. Alshawa (a1), H. J. Lozykowski (a1), T. Li (a1) and I. Brown (a2)


The photoluminescence (PL) and time resolved spectra of Nd- and Yb-implanted CdS samples are studied under pulsed and CW excitations using Ar+ ion laser for different excitation intensities and temperature (9 - 300 K). The samples were annealed under different conditions using the thermal-pulse method. For CdS:Nd, the PL spectra was recorded in the range 890-930 nm (transitions 4F3/24I9/2) and for CdS:Yb it was recorded in the range 985 - 1010 nm (transitions 2F5/22F7/2). The Rise time and decay time were studied for both CdS:Nd and CdS:Yb at different emission lines as a function of temperature and excitation power.
