Luminescence emission of nanocrystalline silicon films has been studied by cathodoluminescence (CL) in the scanning electron microscope. As deposited films show visible luminescence with dominant blue band as well as a red band. The evolution of CL bands after implantation and anodization treatments is investigated. Our results suggest that the dominant blue band has a complex character with a component at 400 nm which appears related to quantum size effects.
