Tsukuba, Japan, Mar 12, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - In 1990, scientists reported that nanostructured silicon can emit visible light. This report opened a new frontier for photoelectronics in information technology, called "silicon photonics". Furthermore, the continuous tuning of electromagnetic emission from near-UV to near-infrared wavelengths has been achieved by controlling silicon nanostructures. The quantum yield (QY) of this radiation may exceed 70%, and the use of silicon as the emitting...
