Plasma Nanoparticle Synthesis: Luminescent Colloidal Dispersion of Silicon Quantum Dots from Microwave Plasma Synthesis: Exploring the Photoluminescence Behavior Across the Visible Spectrum (Adv. Funct. Mater. 5/2009)
The cover picture shows a view into the plasma zone of a microwave plasma reactor, which is used to synthesize macroscopic quantities of single crystalline silicon nanoparticles with a very high production rate. These nanoparticles exhibit bright luminescence across the visible spectrum. On page 696, the authors report that the emission of such silicon nanoparticles can be tuned by changing their size and surface chemistry.
