Comparative Analysis of the Effect of Immersion of Porous Silicon in Aqueous Solutions of Li and Fe Salts on the Stability, Peak Position and Intensity of its Photoluminescence
In the process of comparative studies of immersing layers of porous silicon (PS) in aqueous solutions of LiBr and Fe (NO3)3 with subsequent long-term storage up to 150 days, it is established that there exists: (1) the range of concentrations of LiBr (S/2 - S/4) and Fe (NO3)3 (0.2 M), which provide the maximum increase in the intensity of PL; (2) at low concentrations of both salts, a blue shift of the PL peaks and an increase in their intensity are observed during the long-term storage, which is associated with a decrease in the size of the NC in the PS and the influence of silicon bonds with lithium or iron ions; (3) full protection of the PS layer is observed in case of immersion in Fe (NO3)3 with a concentration of 0.7M - 0.8M.
