Secondary growth and photoluminescence from erbium implanted silica nanowires

Shalav, A.; Kim, T. H.; Elliman, R. G.


Gold-catalyzed silicananowires were grown using vapor from the active oxidation of the silicon substrate and then implanted with erbium and annealed. During prolonged annealing at 1100 °C, where the concentration of vapor-phase reactants is sufficient to support nanowire growth, the erbium rich precipitates act as catalysts for the growth of a second generation of nanowires. These secondary nanowires increase in photoluminescence as they grow, suggesting that a fraction of the optically active...[Show more]
