Activation of defects in GaNP by post-growth hydrogen treatment
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Effect of post-growth hydrogen treatment on defects and their role in carrier recombination in molecular beam epitaxial GaNP alloys is examined by means of photoluminescence and optically detected magnetic resonance. We present direct experimental evidence for effective activation of several different defects in carrier recombination by the hydrogen treatment. Among them, two defect complexes are identified to contain a Ga interstitial (Gai). None of the activated Gai complexes was previously observed in GaNP. Possible mechanisms for the hydrogen-induced defect activation are discussed.
