Recent developments in the fields of integrated circuits, technology of CDs, and large volume information transmission resulted in still growing interest in optical and spectral properties of silicon - related materials, in particular produced basing on single crystalline Czochralski grown silicon, Cz - Si. Electronic states related to the presence of structural defects and impurities in Si:O,H,… - related materials [1] are still intensively investigated.

In the presented work, Si:O,H,… samples prepared by implantation technique, and processed at up to 1400 K (HT) under enhanced hydrostatic pressure in argon atmosphere (HP, up to 1.2 GPa) have been investigated. It has been shown that the HT - HP treatment of implanted samples leads to the formation of nano - clusters. The nano - sized structure formation in the samples results in essential changes of optical and spectral properties, being dependent on the HT - HP processing parameters.

The nature and mechanism of nano - sized structure formation in implanted single crystalline silicon, especially in Si:O and Si:H, subjected to complex processing [2, 3], and the effects of HT – HP treatment on spectral characteristics this materials are discussed. Usefulness of such materials for producing of sensors has been demonstrated.
