Ion Exchange Effects in Porous Silicon

We report an effect of alkaline metal ion incorporation into porous silicon (PS) structure from the electrolyte during anodic etching. Blue shift of the whole luminescence spectrum was obtained as a consequence of ion incorporation. We suggest the presence of zeolite-type structures in PS, as an explanation to the observed properties.
