This work reports the coating of porous silicon (PS) with LaF3 and its influence on the photoluminescence (PL) property of PS. PS samples, prepared by electrochemical etching in a solution of HF and ethanol, were coated with e-beam evaporated-LaF3 of different thicknesses. It was observed that the thin LaF3 layer on PS led to a good enhancement of PL yield… CONTINUE READING
