ZnS films were deposited by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on porous silicon (PS) substrates formed by electrochemical anodization of p-type (100) silicon wafer. The photoluminescence (PL) spectra of ZnS/PS composites were measured at room temperature. Under different excitation wavelengths, the relative integrated intensities of the red light emission from PS layers and the blue-green emission from ZnS films had different values. After samples were annealed in vacuum at different temperatures (200, 300, and 400 Celsius degree) for 30 min respectively, a new green emission located at around 550 nm appeared in the PL spectra of all ZnS/PS samples, and all of the ZnS/PS composites had a broad PL band (450-700 nm) in the visible region, exhibiting intensively white light emission.
