ABSTRACT
The feasibility of producing erbium-doped silicon light-emitting diodes by molecular beam epitaxy is demonstrated. The p-n junctions are formed by growing an erbium-doped p-type epitaxial silicon layer on an n-type silicon substrate. When the diodes are bland in the forward direction at 77 K they show an intense sharply structured electroluminescence spectrum at 1.54 µm. This luminescence is assigned to the internal 4f-4f transition [sup 4]I[sub 13/2]→[sup 4]I[sub 15/2] of Er[sup 3+] (4f[sup 11]).
