Title: Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) Luminescence from ZnGa2O4 Nanowire Arrays

Abstract

Using a simple two-step reaction process, we have demonstrated the synthesis of large-area ZnGa2O4, ZnGa2O4:Mn2+, and ZnGa2O4:Cr3+ nanowire arrays which, respectively, exhibit bright blue, green, and red luminescence under UV light irradiation. The realization of three primary colors from one host material suggests that full color display based on ZnGa2O4 nanowires might be achievable. These luminescent nanowires could also be used in solid-state lighting as well as radiation detection. The cathodoluminescence properties of the ZnGa2O4 nanowires will be studied in future research.
