In photolumines-cence spectroscopy measurements on the as-grown samples emission with energies between 3.122 and 3.044 eV were observed, corresponding approximately to Cd-contents between 2.7% and 3.6%. Due to the annealing a monotonic blue-shift of the Zn_(1-x)Cd_xO-related luminescence was found with increasing annealing temperature. The shift was small for annealing temperatures of up to 720℃, thus a stability of the heterostructures up to this temperature was concluded. The underlying diffusion process was investigated to determine the diffusion coefficient for the different annealing temperatures. The temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficient shows an activation enthalpy in the range between 2.1 and 3.5 eV, depending on the growth conditions. 收起<<
