Abstract
  • Solid state luminescent sulfides are prepared as powders in order to elucidate the relationship between structure and light emission. While the sulfides studied in this dissertation are known phosphors, materials are investigated in a variety of new ways. Elementary properties and structures of MgS are reviewed, and preparation of MgS is described with sufficient detail that it may be reproduced in laboratories worldwide. Luminescence of MgS:Eu is evaluated, primarily by interpretation of published work. Solid pellets of MgS:Eu are created for the purpose of depositing thin-film layers by physical vapor deposition, and incorporating the phosphor layer within ACTFEL structures. Fabricated devices are found to exhibit bright ACTFEL luminescence–the brightest known for MgS. Similarly, MgS films are doped with a variety of lanthanide atoms to investigate the hot-electron distribution in MgS layers during device operation. The system BaGa₂S₄-SrGa₂S₄ is evaluated for mutual solid phase solubility. Addition of Eu²⁺ causes each of these phases to photoluminescence. The emission energies (and therefore colors) are adjusted according to composition. Thin-film oxides are deposited from solution sources. Solution-deposited ZnO serves as the semiconductor layer in transparent thin-film transistor devices. A new class of dielectric material is also developed by solution methods. HafSOx and ZircSOx films, and derivative compositions, are evaluated in simple capacitor structures and demonstrated in functioning transistor devices. High-resolution nanolaminate structures are also constructed from this class of materials. From the knowledge and experience of developing oxide thin-films, more general chemical strategies are expressed.
