The samples grown in different oxygen pressures show different luminescence properties. For all the samples, the PL spectra at different temperature indicate that the UV emission at room-temperature originate from the corporate contributions of the free exciton (FX) and free electrons-to-acceptor transitions (FA).

In lower oxygen pressure (0.2 Pa), FA emission dominate at room-temperature spectrum. With the increase of oxygen pressure, the intensity of FA emission is reduced gradually. In 3 Pa FX emission related to free exciton is main. The result indicate that the sample grown in lower oxygen pressure have a great deal the intrinsic defects due to deviations of the stoichiometric ratio.
