Abstract

For a long time the application of silicon technology for optoelectronics has been limited by the extremely poor generation of light by bulk silicon. However, the properties of Si were found to depend on its structure at a nanometric scale and bright photoluminescence from silicon nanocrystals (Si-nc) was discovered. In this work, the results obtained for the mechanical connecting of single Si-nc by two independent techniques are presented. First, the room temperature approach of connecting and introducing Si-nc embedded in colloidal suspensions by capillary forces within multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and second, the direct growth of MWCNTs on single Si-nc coated with iron catalyst are described.
