The photoluminescence (PL) emitted by porous silicon has been investigated under different conditions of excitation using a pulsed nitrogen laser source, and the continuous tunable DV synchrotron source at Daresbury Laboratory. The project involved sample preparation, and PL measurements using a custom-built optical laser-based system for lifetime measurements. This in itself necessitated software and hardware development to enable interfacing and data-logging using an IBM-compatible PC. The equipment development formed a major part of the project.
