Abstract

AlInN layers implanted with europium and erbium ions are systematically studied and compared with similarly implanted GaN. Cathodoluminescence from four series of annealed samples shows that the Eu/Er emissions from AlInN are considerably broader than those from GaN, while the peak positions only change slightly. The rate of increase of cathodoluminescence intensity with annealing temperature, up to 1300 °C, is analyzed for all four series. For Eu the increase exceeds 10× in both hosts. Although some decomposition is observed for annealing at 1200 °C, well above the growth temperature, AlInN is shown to be a surprisingly robust host for rare earth ions.
