We report on a technique for generating Si-clusters in the nanometer size regime. The cluster source is capable of generating micron-thick cluster films in a few minutes. The cluster films luminesce in the visible and infrared. Source construction is discussed. Electron micrographs of the clusters are shown. Luminescence and optical absorption spectra for the clusters are presented.
