The attention has been focused on the optical properties of structures of the form: Au/MS/a-Si1-xCx:H/Si(100)/Al as a function of the deposition temperature of the a-Si1-xCx:H films. The amorphous SiC:H films were obtained for different temperatures ranging from 150°C up to 500°C. By photoluminescence, blue emission from all the structures was observed at room temperature and a high emission was obtained for sample whose amorphous film was deposited at 500°C. The spectral response of Au/MS/a-Si1-xCx:H/Si(100)/Al structures with a-Si1-xCx:H film deposited at 250°C, exhibits a maximum value at λ=950 nm while for structure with a-Si1-xCx:H film obtained at 150°C, a maximum value of λ was observed at 400 nm.
