    Wideband quadrature frequency spectroscopy (QFRS) reveals that the photoluminescence (PL) lifetime distribution of porous silicon (PS) is inherently double-peaked in structure. The main peak is the well-known S-band PL peak with a lifetime of a few tens μs at room temperature that changes to...
