Films of manganese doped zinc silicate have been deposited using the charged liquid cluster beam technique. The deposition conditions were found to have a large impact on the morphology and photoluminescence intensity of these films. The photoluminescence intensity was maximized at a manganese content near δ=0.04 in (Zn1-δMnδ)2SiO4. No phases other than zinc silicate were detectable with manganese contents up to δ=0.08.
