Disputation: Luminescence of Silicon Nanoparticles Synthesized by Ion Implantation
Silicon nanoparticles (SiNPs) have been shown to display luminescence in the visible range with a peak wavelength depending on the nanoparticle size. This finding is of potential interest for integration of optoelectronic devices in semiconductor technology. In this thesis, silicon nanoparticles are formed in thermally grown SiO2 films by implantation of Si-ions.
