We incorporate the tools of Lévy processes and distributions to describe the photoluminescence of silicon nanocrystals.

Abstract

We incorporate the tools of Lévy processes and distributions to describe the photoluminescence of silicon nanocrystals. The method relies on two novel features: first we use exact forms of one-sided Lévy distributions to get an excellent reproduction of experimental data. Then we show that the dynamics leading to photoluminescence decay can be modelled in terms of fractional Fokker-Planck equation. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
