Paper Abstract

A MOS-LED and a p-n LED emitting based on the dislocation-related luminescence (DRL) at 1.5 micron were already demonstrated by the authors. Here we report recent observation of the Stark effect for the DRL in Si. Namely, a red/blue-shift of the DRL peak positions was observed in electro- and photo-luminescence when the electric field in the pn-LED was increased/lowered. Fitting the experimental data yields a strong characteristic coefficient of 0.0186 meV/(kV/cm)2. This effect may allow realization of a novel Si-based emitter and modulator combined in a single device.
