Chapter 5

Complementing Silicon With Other Materials for Light Emission, Efficient Light Modulation and Subwavelength Light Confinement

This chapter consists of two parts as follows:

Part one: Light-emitting sources in Si as photonic material

This part concerns about the light-emitting sources in Si where the implantation or epitaxy techniques are used to implement Er or silicides and porous Si.

Part two: Competing and complementing technologies and materials to an all group IV–based photonics approach.

At first, the photonic behavior of graphene as an alternative material for photodetectors and modulators is presented. This chapter deals also with III–V materials on Si, plasmonics and EOP. The integration, feasibility, and reliability issues ...
