This study investigated the effects of the post-O2-annealing process on light emission from silicon nanocrystals. Using pulsed laser ablation in an O2-filled atmosphere, the SiOx (x≪2) thin layers were synthesized prior to O2-annealing. We observed a strong photoluminescence from the silicon nanocrystals embedded in the annealed layers at 500 °C, which depended on the post-O2-annealing time. We also found that the interface property between the silicon nanocrystal and stoichiometric SiO2 matrix is critical for efficient light emission. The electroluminescence spectra in the visible range were obtained above the on-current density of 0.7 A/cm2 under several forward-bias voltages. The blueshift in the electroluminescence was attributed to the band-filling effect under high current injection mode. The external emission efficiency was estimated to be about 0.3% by using the band-filling model.
