Periodic oscillations in the luminescence spectra of amorphous hydrogenated carbon are reported. The period of these oscillations is 0.185 ± 0.010 eV, which is equal to the C-H wagging-mode energy. These oscillations are a function of the photoexcitation energy Eex; they appear when Eex<~2.16 eV and are absent when Eex>~2.60 eV, suggesting that localized electron-hole pairs are created by the former and extended states by the latter.
