About this collection

We are delighted to share with you a selection of the papers which will be presented at our Faraday Discussion on Luminescent silicon nanostructures taking place in York, UK in February 2020. More information about the event may be found here: http://rsc.li/silicon-fd2020. Additional articles will be added to the collection as they are published. The final versions of all the articles presented and a record of the live discussions will be published after the event.

Silicon is the most important semiconducting material of the microelectronic industry. Bulk silicon does not exhibit good optical properties, however in the late 1980s good emission was observed and studied in a silicon-based material, porous silicon. Since then, a variety of luminescent silicon nanostructures have been investigated, but different results and interpretations have been reported in the literature regarding the origin of the luminescence of these structures.

This Faraday Discussion will explore new methodologies to synthesize and characterise luminescent silicon nanostructures, from porous silicon to nanocrystals and nanorods. Attention will be devoted to the most promising applications of these systems in the fields of bioimaging, sensing and energy conversion (e.g., OLED and luminescent solar concentrators). Wet, dry, chemical, physical, thermal, out-of-equilibrium formation paths will be related to the physics of the produced nanostructures and to the role of the matrix (interface) in which they are embedded.
