Paper Abstract

The photoluminescence (PL) properties in GaN epilayers were investigated after depositing graphene quantum dots (GQDs) on the GaN surface. A seven-fold enhancement of the PL intensity in GaN was observed in the GQD/GaN composite. On the basis of the PL dynamics, the enhancement of PL in GaN is attributed to the carrier transfer from GQDs to GaN. Such a carrier transfer is caused by the work function difference between GQDs and GaN, evidencing by Kelvin probe measurement. The improved PL is promising toward applications in the GaN-based optoelectronic devices.
