Abstract

We fabricated the multi-color electroluminescent (EL) device using hydrofluoric (HF) acid solution treated and oxidized silicon (Si) nanoparticles. Strong red luminescence was obtained from the HF treated Si nanoparticles based EL device under a low forward bias of 4.0 V. On the other hand, green and blue luminescence, which could be seen with naked eye under room illumination, was observed for the oxidized Si nanoparitcles based EL device at the forward bias below 9.5 V, because of reduction of size due to oxidation onto the Si nanoparticle surface. Furthermore, the red/green/blue lights showed good stability for aging of a long period of time in air by the formation of oxidized layer on the surface. These results indicate that the EL devices developed in this study can realize as application to future flat panel display.
