Optical properties of silicon nanocrystals dispersed in SiO2 matrix were investigated in terms of photoluminescence
quantum yield at room temperature. Two multilayer samples, prepared from substoichiometric silicon oxide layers by
annealing at 1150°C were used to investigate the influence of Si concentration. Significant reduction of
photoluminescence quantum yield and a very specific change of its excitation energy dependence upon variation of
silicon excess are concluded from the experimental data. Possible mechanisms leading to these changes are discussed.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
