Paper Abstract

The emission properties of aluminum-doped zinc oxide are numerically investigated. A complete model for photoluminescence, based on the set of rate equations for electron-hole recombination, is used to study the influence of carrier concentration (1017-1020 cm-3 ) on the visible and ultraviolet (UV) emission. The set of coupled rate equations is solved numerically using the fourth order Runge-Kutta technique for various optical pump intensities and pulse durations. The results for low carrier concentration (~1017 cm-3 ) show that at low pump intensity (0.01 mJ/cm2 ) visible emission is dominant in the emission spectrum and, as the pump intensity increases (~1 mJ/cm2 ), the UV emission becomes dominant. The study of ultrafast dynamics shows that for pump pulse durations of less than ~ 1 ns the intensity of the UV emission is an order of magnitude larger compared to the visible intensity for aluminum-doped ZnO samples with carrier concentration ~1018 cm-3 .
