Abstract

Impressive advances have been made over the last few years in teaching silicon how to emit light. Recently, light-emitting devices made of porous silicon and other forms of nanoscale silicon have been demonstrated with specifications that start to make them attractive for commercial applications. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art in the materials science and device properties of nanoscale silicon-based LEDs, including their integration with microelectronic circuits.
