Abstract

An overview is given on a "plug and play" approach in which sonochemically synthesized amorphous Fe2O3 nanoparticles are incorporated onto device quality Si wafers. After annealing the amorphous Fe2O3 nanoparticles they change their properties from superparamagnetic to soft ferromagnetic. The samples exhibit multiple light emissions with wavelength that are crucial for optical fiber communications.
