Well separated Si/ZnS radial nanowire heterojunction based light emitting devices have been fabricated on large area substrates, by depositing n-ZnS film on p-type nano-porous Si nanowire templates. Vertically oriented porous Si nanowires on p-Si substrates have been grown by metal assisted chemical etching catalyzed using Au nanoparticles. Isolated Si nanowires with needle shaped arrays have been made by KOH treatment before ZnS deposition. Electrically driven efficient white light emission from radial heterojunction arrays has been achieved under a low forward bias condition. The observed white light emission is attributed to blue and green emission from defect related radiative transition of ZnS and Si/ZnS interface, respectively, while the red arises from porous surface of Si nanowire core. The observed white light emission from Si/ZnS nanowire heterojunction could open up the new possibility to integrate Si based optical sources on a large scale.
