Paper Abstract

ZnO has attracted considerable attention as a potential candidate for short-wavelength optoelectronic devices. How to realize p-type ZnO films and ZnO p-n junctions is the key step for application of ZnO-based devices. We report the growth and properties of p-type ZnO films by combination of nitrogen and indium (N-In) codoping method and ultrasonic spray pyrolysis technique. The controllability of conductivity type in ZnO based films can be realized by adjusting the deposition and doping parameters. A conversion from p-type conduction to n-type conduction in a range of temperature has been identified by the measurement of Seebeck and Hall-effect for the first time. The two-layer structured ZnO p-n homojunctions with good rectifying characteristics were successfully prepared by depositing undoped ZnO on N-In codoped ZnO film. These achievements indicate it should be possible to fabricate ZnO-based optoelectronic devices such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes (LDs) in the near future.
