Title:Boosting quantum efficiency of GaN-based light-emitting diodes

Abstract:III-nitride light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have attracted considerable interest for applications in automotive front lighting, high-resolution full color displays, and visible light communication. However, the internal quantum efficiency of GaN-based LEDs is limited by high threading dislocation density in GaN film due to the lattice mismatch and difference in thermal expansion coefficients between the GaN and the substrate. In addition, the light extraction efficiency of GaN-based LEDs is relatively low due to total internal reflection of light at the GaN-air interface. We will outline the recent advances in improving crystalline quality and light extraction efficiency of III-nitride blue/green/ultraviolet LEDs. Recent work in our research group, including sputtered AlN nucleation layer, ultrathin tunneling junction, hybrid nucleation layer, patterned substrate with silica array (PSSA), pre-well structure, staggered quantum wells, V-shaped pits, sidewalls nano-prism, thermally stable Ag mirror, and full-angle distributed Bragg reflector (DBR), will be discussed in this talk. We show that the sputtered AlN nucleation layer can enhancec-plane growth and suppress growth of GaN on cone region of PSS, which can effectively eliminate the undesirable GaN islands on the inclined sidewall of PSS and thus suppress the generation of TDs from coalescence of GaN islands. We find that the V-pit potential barrier height depends on the V-pit diameter, which plays an important role in determining the quantum efficiency, forward voltage and efficiency droop of green LEDs. We demonstrate efficient InGaN-based yellow (570 nm) LEDs with optimized three-layer staggered quantum wells (QWs) that are grown on patterned sapphire substrates. We observed a reduced threading dislocation density in the films grown on PSSA, attributing to the preferable vertical growth mode and reduced misfit at the coalescence boundary. Furthermore, a significant enhancement in light extraction efficiency can be achieved from InGaN/AlGaN-based ultraviolet LEDs built on PSSA owing to the large refractive index contrast between the epilayers and PSSA. We show that it is possible to improve both the light extraction efficiency and current spreading of flip-chip LED by incorporating a highly reflective metallic reflector made from Ag. Moreover, mini/micro-LEDs for high-definition displays will be introduced.

Title:Plasma and ion beam technology is used in the preparation of thin film materials

Abstract:Firstly, graphene thin film materials are prepared by plasma technology, which effectively produces large-scale and transfer-free graphene thin films on silicon carbide wafers in a low-vacuum process. In the annealing process after nitrogen plasma treatment of silicon carbide, nitrogen and silicon preferentially react spontaneously to form silicon nitride, and at the same time, carbon atoms will be extruded and condensed to the surface to form a graphene film. Subsequently, plasma and ion beam technology will be used for the preparation of a series of graphene-like, transition metal chalcogenide, and transition metal nitride thin film materials.

Title:The role and influence of rare earth elements in the modification of heavy rail steel inclusions

Abstract:Heavy gauge steel is often used in railroad tracks to provide a stable travel path for trains. Therefore, heavy gauge steel not only needs to be strong enough to withstand the weight of trains, but also needs to have good wear and corrosion resistance. Inclusions have a significant impact on their properties. For example, oxides and sulfides in steel are the main causes of internal damage and fatigue damage in heavy gauge steel. Therefore, controlling and improving these inclusions is the key to improving the performance of heavy gauge steel. Rare earth elements, due to their special physicochemical properties, can significantly change the type and distribution of inclusions in steel when added to steel. After the addition of rare earths, the morphology of inclusions will change significantly, from the original ellipsoidal and fusiform to nearly spherical. In addition, the original presence of MnS, Al2O3 and some other inclusions will be replaced by rare earth sulfides and rare earth sulfur oxides. In this paper, a first-principles calculation method based on density-functional theory is used to calculate the sequential formation order of inclusions, and the modification of the elastic properties of inclusions and the various anisotropies of the elastic properties by the rare-earth element La is investigated from a microscopic point of view. The corrosion resistance of the inclusions before and after modification is characterized by using the intrinsic potential difference. The La2O2S and LaAlO3 modified by La are closer to the average elastic modulus of the steel matrix, with less anisotropy and reduced stress concentration. The modified cerium aluminate also has better corrosion resistance. This is one of the reasons for the improved fatigue properties of the steel after doping with rare earths.
