Paper Abstract

Photoluminescence time resolved spectra (PL-TRS) and decay times measurements in microsecond range at room temperature on anodically etched boron-doped silicon are presented PL- TRS exhibit multiband structure and can be decomposed as a sum of few Gaussians. Decay curves of photoluminescence have a multiexponential shape. Relaxation times depend on wavelength of the observation. To explain our results we assumed model in which the multi-barrier structure is formed by silicon crystal surrounded by silicon quantum wires, oriented perpendicular to the sample surface with diameters in the range of 2 to 12 nm. The visible photoluminescence originates from radiative recombination between discrete energy levels in quantum well.
