A donor to acceptor pair photoluminescence (PL) peak at 2.51 eV was observed in Zn-doped CuAlSe2 epilayers grown by low-pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. The summation of ionization energies of the donor and the acceptor was obtained to be 330 meV from the excitation intensity dependence of the PL peak energy. The Zn impurity is shown to act as a defect-killer because of the apperance of exciton emission at 2.716 eV.
