Hydrogen Passivation of Shallow Dopants in InP Studied by Photoluminescence Spectroscopy

  • Sathya Balasubramanian (a1) and Vikram Kumar (a2)
Abstract
ABSTRACT

The effect of hydrogenation on the photoluminescence (PL) of InP : Mg, InP : Zn and undoped n-InP is presented. An increase in the near band edge pl intensity due to passivation of non-radiative centers was observed in all the samples. A donor - acceptor pair transition was observed before hydrogenation in the InP : Mg sample and after hydrogenation in the InP : Zn sample due to the acceptor deactivation. In n-InP the enhancement of donor bound exciton after hydrogenation points to the absence of donor passivation.
