Abstract

Electroluminescence was generated in homogeneous samples of zinc sulfide free of internal contact barriers. The electroluminescence spectrum and dependence of the brightness on the voltage were determined. Ultraviolet electroluminescence, corresponding to interband recombination of electronhole pairs, was detected and its spectrum investigated. The hypothesis of strong compensation of zinc sulfide was verified. The forbidden band width and the donor level depth were determined from the electrical conductivity of zinc sulfide single crystals. It wasfound that the bulk electrical conductivity, photoconductivity, and electroluminescence of zinc sulfide were weakly anisotropic.
