Abstract: We have fabricated Sn:In 2O 3 (ITO)-Al 2O 3 dielectric on Si 1-xGe x-Si metal-oxide-semiconductor tunnel diodes which emit light at around 1.3 μm, for x = 0.7. The emitted photon energy is smaller than the bandgap energy of Si, thus, avoiding strong light absorption by the Si substrate. The optical device structure is compatible with that of a metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor, since a conventional doped poly-Si gate electrode will be transparent to the emitted light. Increasing the Ge composition from 0.3 to 0.4 only slightly decreases the light-emitting efficiency.
