Time-resolved photoluminescence measurements were used to study the passivation kinetics of luminescence-quenching defects, associated with Si nanocrystals in SiO2, during isothermal and isochronal annealing in molecular hydrogen. The passivation of these defects was modeled using the generalized simple thermal model of simultaneous passivation and dissociation, proposed by Stesmans. Values for the reaction-rate parameters were determined and found to be in excellent agreement with values...[Show more]
