Photoluminescence properties of ZnIn2Se4


The photoluminescence properties of ZnIn2Se4 were studied at 300K by use of confocal laser microspectrometry. For the first time, edge luminescence with a maximum at 674 nm was observed. Nonlinear intensity dependence of the photoluminescence on the excitation light is found.

Keywords: ZnIn2Se4, edge luminescence, antistructural defects.
PACS: 63.20.dk, 74.25.Kc
