Paper Abstract

Nanocrystalline Ge particles embedded in glassy SiO2 matrix were prepared by rf cosputtering technique and the followed thermal annealing at 600 degree(s)C. Multiple-peak structure around 2.26 ev in photoluminescence spectrum of annealed sample was observed at room temperature, and variation of PL with excitation wavelengths in a range from 457.9 nm to 514.5 nm has been systematically measured and investigated. Raman scattering and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements strongly suggested existence of Ge nanocrystalline particulates in the SiO2 matrices. The size of nc-Ge is dependent on thermal treatment condition. A preliminary discussion about the origin of such visible photoluminescence phenomenon is presented.
