Abstract

Large photo-induced absorption signals were observed in free standing porous silicon films in the spectral range from 1.1 to 2.5 eV using a femtosecond pump and probe technique. The measured nonlinear signal has a very fast component with relaxation constants from 800 fs to tens of picoseconds superimposed on the slow-relaxing thermal background. The spectral structure and relaxation dynamics of the short-lived component of transient absorption show the presence of molecular-like Si complexes with well defined energy levels and spectrally uniform picosecond relaxation dynamics.
