Luminescence properties induced by sintering of silica nanoparticles

Risultato della ricerca: Other


The effect of sintering on the optical properties of silica nanoparticles, a mean diameter of ~14 nm, are investigated by absorption and luminescence experiments. The sintering is induced by a thermal treatment of 1000 °C for 272 hours; after that the sample is transparent, and emits a bright luminescence under UV excitation. Time resolved photoluminescence spectra excited by a tunable laser source allows to evidence four bands around 2.0 eV, 2.4 eV, 2.7 eV and 3.4 eV, peculiar to defects induced by the sintering.
