Paper Abstract

The Si-rich a-SiNx films are synthesized by pulsed laser ablation of silicon target under NH3 atmosphere. By using laser-induced crystallization technique, the fabrication of nc-Si embedded in the SiNx is also realized. The crystallinity and microstructure of the films after laser annealing are characterized by scanning electron microscopy and micro-Raman spectroscopy. Additionally, in order to investigate the role of the SiNx on protecting the nc-Si from the oxidation in the air, the energy diffraction X-ray spectrum is also carried out. By photoluminescence (PL) spectrum measurement, the PL peak blue shifting is observed at room temperature. The results suggest that nc-Si embedded in the silicon nitride could be effectively passivated and stable PL of nasnosilicon grains could be obtained.
