We report on photoluminescence (PL) properties of Cu- and Al-doped ZnS nanocrystals fabricated by sequential implantation of Zn[sup +], S[sup +], Cu[sup +], and Al[sup +] ions into Al[sub 2]O[sub 3] matrices. The spatially resolved PL spectrum has been studied by a scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM). In the SNOM image, bright spots are observed on the sample surface. The PL spectrum at each bright spot is broad and is not sensitive to the monitored positions. The broad SNOM-PL spectrum at each spot is very similar to the macroscopic PL spectrum measured by conventional optics. The donor-acceptor pair luminescence process in nanocrystals is discussed. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    The effects of B and P codoping on photoluminescence (PL) properties of Si nanocrystals (nc-Si) are studied systematically. It is shown that the PL intensity of codoped nc-Si is always higher than that of either P- or B-doped nc-Si. The intensity is sometimes even higher than that of pure nc-Si...
