This report shows that passivation of a few surface monolayers can suffice to provide stable PL without affecting the bulk characteristics. It was established that, if the hydrogen at the surface is substituted by oxygen, the resulting Si-Ox passivation is significantly more stable. To achieve this, one has to implant low energy/low dose oxygen to form a thin coating of SiO2 on the surface, Post implantation FTIR data report the absence of Si-H peaks. XPS data indicate the formation of nearly stoichiometric SiO2 at the surface.
