Fundamental optoelectronic properties of ZnO-X alloy (completed)
In the project we will further explore the rather unconventional type of ZnO-based materials, that is (ZnO)1-yXy where X is an isovalent alloy compound, for instance X = SiC.
By substituting both the cations and anions in ZnO (e.g. SiZn and CO) one can significantly alter and control the material properties, while ensuring relatively small disturbance on the crystalline structure since the binary constituents are isovalent with matching bond lengths.
