Paper Abstract

Some properties of radiation originating from an avalanching silicon light emitting diode (Si-LED) are dealt with. They are derived from various parts of the spectrum of the Si-LED light. The interdependence of the light output intensity (Li), wavelength ((lambda) ) and reverse current (IR) are determined, as well as the rate of change dLi/d(lambda) and dLi/dIR as a function of (lambda) and IR. The result demonstrate that Li and, to a much lesser extent (lambda) , can be controlled by IR.
