Abstract [en]

The available data on photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy of single Si nanocrystals (Si-nc) is reviewed for two types of samples: (i) Regular matrices of Si pillars produced by electron-beam lithography, reactive ion etching and oxidation, (ii) grains of porous Si deposited onto a substrate from a diluted colloidal suspension. A wide-field imaging micro-spectroscope with detection by a CCD camera is used preferably to detect spectra, while a confocal microscope with singlephoton- counting detection is applied for detection of PL fluctuations, so called ON-OFF blinking. Cryogenic-temperature PL spectroscopy of Si-nc reveals atomic-like narrow lines that document an unexpectedly large contribution of zero-phonon transitions and also some lowfrequency phonon-replicas. The blinking photon-statistics indicates that the transition between bright and dark states of a Si-nc has character of a diffusion-controlled electron-transfer reaction where quenching occurs by Auger recombination. Finally we show that all published results indicate a common PL mechanism of Si-nc, largely insensitive to fabrication methods.
