Light emission from silicon containing tin nanocrystals

Brian Julsgaard

Aarhus University

Associate Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark. Current research interests within nanostructured semiconductors, growth of semiconductors, and localized surface plasmons on metal nanostructures for enhancing optical upconversion in erbium ions. Has a background in atomic physics and quantum optics, but worked with semiconductors for nearly ten years.


Nanocrystals of diamond-structured tin (alpha-Sn) are very interesting due to their potential use as light emitters and their chemical compatibility with silicon. Here we present our studies on tin nanocrystals embedded in... [ view full abstract ]
