Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Light emission from silicon based on quantum confinement in nanoscale structures has sparked intense research into this field ever since its discovery about 15 years ago. A barrier to the widespread utilization of luminescent silicon nanocrystals in such diverse application areas as optoelectronics, solid-state lighting for general illumination, or fluorescent agents for biological applications has been the lack of a simple, high-yield synthesis approach. Here we report a scaleable single-step synthesis process for luminescent silicon nanocrystals based on a low-pressure nonthermal plasma.
