Title: White-light luminescence properties of Mg and Sn doped ZnO prepared by thermal oxidation

Graphical abstract: The PL spectrum of MgSnZnO was measured at room temperature through multi-peak Gaussian fitting, it is found that the broad emission is composed of six peaks. - Highlights: • Mg and Sn doped ZnO are synthesized by thermal oxidation of MgSnZn alloys. • The structure is characterized by XRD and micro-Raman scattering technology. • The optical properties are characterized by photoluminescence spectrum. • The resulting Mg and Sn doped ZnO shows white photoluminescence. - Abstract: This work reports that Mg and Sn doped ZnO (MgSnZnO) are synthesized by thermal oxidation of MgSnZn alloys. The structure and optical properties are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), micro-Raman scattering technology and photoluminescence spectrum. Interestingly, the resulting MgSnZnO shows white photoluminescence. Additionally, the photoluminescence spectrum of MgSnZnO shows two broad emission bands ranging from 360 to 420 nm and 420 to 630 nm, respectively. Through multi-peak Gaussian fitting, it is found that the broad emission is composed of six Gaussian peaks. The six Gaussian peaks are centrered at 383 nm, 397 nm, 455 nm, 516 nm, 560 nm and 614 nm.
