Abstract
The goal of this effort is to grow ZnO-GaN hybrid spin LED structures. Two different spin LED structures will be fabricated. Cermet, Inc and Georgia Institute of Technology will grow oxide on nitride and nitride on oxide LED structures through MOCVD. Thequality of the grown structures will be characterized by X-ray, PL, CL and DLTS. Electrical and magnetic properties will be investigated. Based on the experimental results, the superior LED structure will be selected to fabricate spin LED in phase II.Successful completions of Phase I will yield ZnO-GaN hybrid spin LED structures having room temperature curie temperature. This proposed work provides basis for a hybrid spin LED. Defense systems, automotive, commercial aviation and commercialcommunications industries will benefit from this technology.
