    It is shown that surface treatment of porous silicon in inorganic acids and solutions of metal chlorides leads to an increase in the intensity of photoluminescence of this material. In the case of chlorides, a short-wavelength shift of the photoluminescence maximum is also observed. The effect...

    We report on the observation of persistent photoluminescence (PPL) in oxidized porous silicon. The PPL decay can be well described by a stretched-exponential function, and its decay rate is not sensitive to the change of temperature. We point out that the PPL behavior can be interpreted in terms...
