Abstract

Porous fluorescent (f-) SiC containing N and B was produced by anodic oxidation. The average crystal size can be controlled by adding K2S2O8 as an oxidant to dilute HF solution during the anodic process. With the reduction of the average crystal size of the porous crystal, the PL peak wavelength becomes shorter, and its intensity increases. Such behavior can be explained by the quantum size effect of donor-acceptor-pair recombination. Finally, we confirmed the superior fluorescent property of blue light emission in porous f-SiC crystal (© 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
