Published: Strong Electro-optic Effect in Mg Incorporated ZnO Thin Films

Our paper entitled “Strong Electro-optic Effect in Mg Incorporated ZnO Thin Films” has been published in Appl. Phys. Lett. We found that the Mg incorporation enhances the linear EO response significantly. In particular, the Zn0.72Mg0.28O thin film showed an effective EO coefficient of 7.6 pm/V, which is over three times larger than the reported values for ZnO-based thin films and over twice larger than that of ZnO single crystals. This study is the collaborative research with Dr. Meng of Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
