Title: Modulating donor–acceptor transition energies in phosphorus–boron co-doped silicon nanocrystals via X- and L-type ligands

Abstract

We explore the effect of ligand binding groups on the photoluminescent properties of phosphorus–boron co-doped silicon nanocrystals (PB:Si NCs) by exploiting X-type (covalent) and L-type (Lewis donor molecule) bonding interactions.
