Abstract

Lanthanoid-doped Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors are a promising class of materials with the potential to be used across a range of novel quantum optelectronic all-locations including room temperature single photon sources. However, to date there is relatively little understood about the properties of small lanthanoid ensembles, which is required before this class of materials can reach their full potential. This paper reports room temperature optical properties of submicron extent implanted-Praseodymium (Pr) in GaN. Thermal annealing at 1200 °C is conducted for the Pr implanted GaN using SiN cap technique to activate implanted-Pr as luminescent centers. The photoluminescence shows two ..
