Abstract

Low temperature photoluminescence and optical absorption studies on 200 MeV Ag+15 ion irradiated Co-implanted ZnO thin films were studied. The Co clusters present in as implanted samples were observed to be dissolved using 200 MeV Ag+15 ion irradiation with a fluence of 1× 1012 ions cm2. The photoluminescence spectrum of pure ZnO thin film was characterized by the I4 peak due to the neutral donor bound excitons and the broad green emission. The Co-doped ZnO films show three sharp levels and two shoulders corresponding to 3 t2g and 2 eg levels of crystal field splitted Co d orbitals, respectively. The ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy also shows the systematic variation of band gap after 200 MeV Ag+15 ion irradiation.
