Action de la température sur l'électroluminescence de monocristaux de ZnS, de différentes compositions

C.F. Alfrey

Electron Physics Department, Birmingham University, Angleterre

The electroluminescence of ZnS single crystals containing different amounts of copper is described. The electroluminescence is a maximum at a certain temperature characteristic of the crystal, this temperature being lower, the higher the copper concentration. These results are in accordance with a mechanism previously developed, if the effect of quenching of the light emission at high temperatures is considered.
