Luminescence properties of ion implanted nanocrystalline silicon dioxide


Why Optoelectronics?

  • continuous need for more computer power
  • common bottleneck: communication between chips (chip-to-chip) und boards (board-to-board)
  • high RC-constants
  • pin-limitation
  • multiple point connections
  optical data transfer


Required properties of luminescent materials in optoelectronics:

  • Compatibility with common Si technology
  • High quantum efficiency
  • Stable during long time operation
  • Short decay time -> fast switching time


Development of luminescent materials based on dry Si technology and ion beam synthesis
