Control of Optoelectronic Properties via Aliovalent Disorder in Ternary Nitrides and Oxynitrides
The III-V family of semiconductor compounds have revolutionized optoelectronics. From record-efficiency GaAs solar cells to the GaN-based light-emitting diodes that won the 2014 Nobel Prize, these compounds and alloys have enabled contemporary optoelectronic technology. However, there are challenges that cannot be solved with the III-Vs; there is still an outstanding need for Earth-abundant and non-toxic optoelectronics, especially in the green-emitting regime. The underexplored II-IV-V2 family of materials offers the possibility of groundbreaking optoelectronic properties similar to the III-Vs ...
