Structural Properties and Doping of Zn1-x(Mg,Li)xOMaterials


The possibility of the solid solutions with MgO provides the opportunity in ZnO/ZnMgO quantum well structures. The recent observation that n-type conductivity in ZnO is due to hydrogen doping open the avenue for p-doping to form p-n junction devices in ZnO.. We report on the synthesis and structural properties of Zn (Mg,Li)O. The possibility of p-doping by P has been explored.
