Abstract
<p>Si/SiGe/Si:Er:O-heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT)-type light emitting devices with Er3+ ions incorporated in the collector region have been fabricated using layered structures prepared by differential molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). Intense light emission at 1.54 µm has been observed at room temperature by hot electron impact excitation at rather low injection current and applied voltage. Separate controls of the injection current and bias voltage make it possible to perform detailed electroluminescence (EL) studies that can not be done with conventional Si:Er light emitting diodes (LEDs). Saturation of the EL intensity occurs at very low current densities indicating a 100-fold increase of the effective excitation cross-section for Si/SiGe/Si:Er:O-HBTs compared with Si:Er-LEDs. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.</p>
