In this paper we report on the light emitting properties of mesoporous silicon vertical-cavity optical resonators with II-VI colloidal quantum dots selectively deposited in the cavity layer. Optical resonator structures exhibit reflectivity stop bands of several hundred nanometres and resonant modes with line-widths less than 3.5 nm. The observed modification of spectral and spatial emission properties of the quantum dots and tenfold enhancement at the resonance wavelength is consistent with cavity enhanced spontaneous emission. Using this hybrid fabrication approach we show that narrow band light emitting structures may be fabricated over a broad spectral region in the visible and near-infrared.
