Abstract

ZnO based oxide system Zn1-x-yBexMgyO has been prepared by pulsed laser deposition. By incorporating different amounts of beryllium and magnesium into ZnO, the bandgap of ZnBeMgO has been modulated from 3.7 to 4.9 eV continuously. The crystal quality of ZnBeMgO film has been improved significantly comparing with that of either ZnMgO or BeZnO. These ZnBeMgO films are promising for fabricating high-efficiency optoelectronic devices such as solar-blind UV detectors.
