Various works on silicon (Si)-based luminescent materials utilizing the quantum confinement effect, such as Si nanocrystals (Si-NC's), have been reported. Typical fabrication methods of Si-NC's are co-sputtering of Si and SiO$$_{2}$$, Si-ion implantation into SiO$$_{2}$$ plates, and so on. In this work, we observed ultraviolet (UV)-light emission from Si-ion-implanted fused-silica substrates under different implanting conditions. The implantation energy was 80 keV, and the implantation amount was 2$$times$$10$$^{17}$$ ions/cm$$^{2}$$. The Si-implanted substrates were annealed at 1100$$sim$$1250$$^{circ}$$C. Photoluminescence (PL) spectra were measured with excitation using a He-Cd laser. UV-PL spectra having peaks around a wavelength of 370 nm were observed from all the samples. The UV-peak wavelengths of the samples are almost the same in spite of the various annealing temperatures. Si-ion-implanted fused-silica are expected to be useful as light sources for next-generation optical-disk systems.
