We have implemented a modified diffusion-limited aggregation model to simulate the porous silicon structure obtained by electrochemical dissolution. The resulting fractal structures were fully equilibrated using the molecular dynamics method. An analysis of the relaxed structure shows it to be quite stable with the presence of one-, two- and three-coordinated atoms as well as the four-coordinated atoms found in bulk silicon. It is suggested that the different substructures or nanocrystals might be responsible for the observed photoluminescence
