Abstract: ZnO substrate crystals from two different sources, and epitaxial layers have been studied by SEM, AFM, photoluminescence (T = 2-135 K) and EPR. Although fabricated by the same growth principle, i.e. the hydrothermal technique, the substrates differ in terms of purity and structural quality. In the PL spectra of all samples the dominating emission originates from the donor bound exciton (BE) recombination positioned at about 3361 meV. The temperature dependence of the spectra confirms the assignment of the fre…
