Carrier recombination in sonochemically synthesized ZnO

What is it about?

It is concluded that the sonochemical fabrication method offers a remarkably convenient means of modifying the relative content of the surface-to-volume defect ratio in ZnO powder grains and altering the dynamics of photoexcited carriers.

Why is it important?

The problem of defects in zinc oxide remains a key challenge for potential applications of this material in opto-electronics and spintronics.

Perspectives

Oleg Korotchenkov

We hope this article makes the ultraviolet emission in ZnO ideally suited to and harnessed in white LEDs.
