Abstract

We have investigated PL behavior of β-FeSi2 nanocrystals controlled by transport of holes in Cu-doped n-type Si substrates. PL enhancement was observed and PCI-PL measurements revealed that PL enhancement was attributed to a transport process of holes with a larger time constant in Cu-doped n-Si substrate in which an interval trap process is controlled by Cu doping.
