Abstract

Strong photoluminescence (PL) centered at 600 nm was observed from europium-silicate thin films. The films were fabricated on Si(100) substrates by using a radio-frequency magnetron sputtering method and subsequent rapid thermal annealing (RTA) in a nitrogen ambient. The mechanism for the formation of the europium silicates during the annealing process was investigated by using X-ray diffraction spectroscopy and Auger electron spectroscopy. The optical transitions associated with divalent europium ions are thought to be responsible for the intense red PL emitted from the europium-silicate thin films.
