  • The effect of the film thickness and postannealing temperature on visible photoluminescence (PL) from SiN{sub x} films synthesized by plasma-assisted radio frequency magnetron sputtering on SiO{sub 2} buffer layers is investigated. It is shown that strong visible PL is achieved at annealing temperatures above 650 deg. C. The optimum annealing temperature for the maximum PL yield strongly depends on the film thickness and varies from 800 to 1200 deg. C. A comparative composition-structure-property analysis reveals that the PL intensity is directly related to the content of the Si-O and Si-N bonds in the SiN{sub x} films. Therefore, sufficient oxidation andmore » moderate nitridation of SiN{sub x}/SiO{sub 2} films during the plasma-based growth process are crucial for a strong PL yield. Excessively high annealing temperatures lead to weakened Si-N bonds in thinner SiN{sub x} films, which eventually results in a lower PL intensity.« less
  • We report an enhancement effect of ultraviolet illumination on the photoluminescence intensities of zinc oxide thin films. Large-grain <0001>-textured zinc oxide thin films were deposited on amorphous-fused silica substrates using pulsed laser deposition. We found that the intensities of excitonic emission and green-band emission increased with ultraviolet light exposure time until a maximum value was achieved. We attribute this ultraviolet radiation enhancement effect to oxygen desorption on the surface of the zinc oxide thin film. We have proposed a phenomenological model to explain this interesting photoluminescence behavior.
  • Films of uranium dioxide ranging in thickness from 132 to 280 m mu were evaporated onto fused silica, annealed at a pressure of 10/sup -6/ mm Hg and 960 deg C, and measured for optical absorption between the wavelengths of 210 and 800 m mu . A moderately intense band observed at 240 io 500 m mu has an unsymmetrical shape with a maximum at about 318 m mu , an approximately linear part with a moderate negative slope between 318 and 380 m mu , and a large negative slope between 380 and 500 m mu . This broadmore » band is undoubtedly at least two unresolved peaks. From 240 m mu to shorter wavelengths there is a very intense absorption band which is most probably the fundamental band for UO/ sub 2/. The extinction coefficient was found to vary from 0.0055 plus or minus 0.0007 at 650 m mu to a maximum of 0.3702 plus or minus 0.0010 at 360 m plus or minus and to a value of 0.167 plus or minus 0.004 at 240 m plus or minus . The index of refraction varied from 2.29 plus or minus 0.03 at 800 m plus or minus to a maximum of 2.58 plus or minus 0.22 at 450 m mu . The effect of oxidation of the films witinn the UO/sub 2/ phase suggests that the one unresolved band at 430 m mu is removed by oxygen and the one at 300 m mu becomes more intense. (auth)« less
  • A series of multi-functional ligands supported lanthanide-organic frameworks, formulated as [Ln(HL{sub 1})(H{sub 2}L{sub 2}){sub 0.5}(H{sub 4}L{sub 2}){sub 0.5}(H{sub 2}O)].(H{sub 2}O){sub 1.5}.{l_brace}Ln=La (1), Pr (2), Nd (3), Sm (4), Eu (5); H{sub 3}L{sub 1}=5-Sulfosaclicylic acid; H{sub 4}L{sub 2}=N,N'-piperazine (bis-methylene phosphonic acid){r_brace}, have been synthesized by hydrothermal reactions. Single crystal X-ray diffractions and powder XRD patterns confirm they are isostructural. They feature 3D framework structures based on extension of a 'zigzag' inorganic chain by organic linkers. Moreover, the photoluminescence properties of 5 and 3 have been investigated, and they show strong solid-state emissions in the visible and near-infrared (IR) regions at roommore » temperature. - Graphical abstract: Five multi-functional ligands supported 3D lanthanide-organic frameworks have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Compounds 5 and 3 displayed strong solid-state emissions in the visible and near-infrared region at room temperature.« less
