The waveguiding, absorption and emission properties of oxidised porous silicon waveguides when impregnated with Nile Blue have been studied. We present m-line measurements before and after the impregnation showing that the effective indices of the modes remain the same. When performing guided luminescence experiments, a structured emission band is measured. Using the refractive index profile extracted from m-line measurements it has been possible to simulate the emission lineshape assuming the observation of an interference pattern formed across the waveguide. We demonstrate that these oscillations appear because in the first hundreds of nanometers the dye concentration is several orders of magnitude higher than in the rest of the sample. © 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
