Abstract: Photoluminescence (PL) and cathodoluminescence (CL) data are presented for the silica frustules of some fresh water diatoms. The diatom frustules consist of a nano-porous silica structure that may possibly be exploited for optoelectronic or photonic applications. This work represents what we believe to be the first report of the CL and PL properties of this naturally occurring source of nano-porous silica.
