The morphological and cathodoluminescent properties of Nd doped zinc oxide thin films deposited by reactive chemical pulverization spray pyrolysis technique on heated glass substrates at 450 °C are being reported. The films were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and cathodoluminescent (CL) spectroscopy. We have also used the Generalised Gradient Approximation (GGA)-the Self Interaction Corrected (SIC) to determine Electronic structure and x ray absorption.
Key words: thin film / neodymium / scanning electron microscope / cathodoluminescence / GGA-SIC
