Abstract for Presentation

Efficient electroluminescence from rare earth doped amorphous Al2O3-Ga2O3 nanolaminates prepared by atomic layer deposition


Rare earth doped luminescent materials are of crucial important on optical communications and optoelectronics. However, the present rare earth doped optical waveguide amplifier and laser can only work under the optical pump by external lasers, electric pump has not yet been realized, this makes them unsuitable for compact large-scale integration. In this report, rare earth doped silicon-based amorphous Al2O3 optical gain materials are combined with Ga2O3 power semiconductor materials, and rare earth doped nanolaminate electroluminescence material and devices are developed by atomic layer deposition technology. The influences of the distributed doping of single rare earth atomic layers on the luminescence properties, such as luminescent intensity, excitation cross section, energy transfer and concentration quenching are studied, Separate control of the hot electron transportation and luminescent properties is adopted by controlling the distance of the doping rare earth atomic layers as well as co-doping of atomic layer of sensitizers around the rare earth layers to overcome the problem of restriction due to the spatial overlapping in traditional uniformly doped materials. By jointly improving the average energy of hot electrons and the effective doping concentration and excitation cross section of rare earth ions. The electron transport, dielectric relaxation and breakdown properties of the nanolaminate composite dielectric materials are studied. By using composite oxide gate MOS structure with negative feedback stabilized electrical transportation, local avalanche breakdown can be suppressed automatically, silicon-based electroluminescent devices with high efficiency and high stability will be developed, which form a foundation for application in integrated electrically pumped rare earth doped silicon-based optical waveguide amplifiers and lasers.
