Abstract : The overall objective of this research is to identify and control the basic physical mechanisms responsible for light emission in synthesized semiconductor and dielectric materials. Investigations are to be performed in order to develop new device concepts and provoke new ideas for optoelectronic applications. Specifically this research involves: (1) analyzing the physical origin of light emission from nanometer-size semiconductor particles; (2) studying the light emission of rare earth dopants in semiconductors and dielectrics and; (3) determining the feasibility of developing light emitting devices based upon the novel properties of such materials.
