Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Zinc oxide has wide direct band gap (3 37eV) and large exciton binding energy (60 meV) and also a similar crystallography with GaN which makes it a promising material for light emitting diode (LED) and laser diode (LD) ZnO microrod has well hexagonal shape which can confine light inside by totally reflectivity and perform whispery-gallery-mode (WGM) lasing WGM cavity provides a low loss that makes it has lower Q factor than traditional lasers Here a horizontal n-ZnO microrod/ p-GaN thin film LED were produced in a simple fabrication process The WGM emission and optical anisotropic properties of individual microrod-based LEDs were studied The electroluminescence spectra of LED show a dominate peak at 380 nm with partially polarization behavior and WGM oscillation at low injection current which has shown great potential for ZnO microrod base laser diode
