Erbium Doped Silicon Nanocrystal
BeschreibungSilicon has been considered for a long time unsuitable for photonic applications. Among the different approaches developed to overcome this problem, quantum confinement in silicon nanostructures and rare earth doping in crystalline silicon have received a great attention. A combination of these two approaches leads to a strong & efficient enhancement of the erbium emission in silicon nanocrystal. Luminescent emission wavelength (1.54µm) of erbium corresponds to the minimum attenuation in long haul optical communication. Besides, Si-nc enables inexpensive and efficient pumping. Enhanced photonic properties of Er doped Si-nc makes it the material of choice for photonic application of the next generations. It can be served as optical interconnects to overcome the bottlenecks of traditional electronic interconnects. This device has the potential to exhibit practically unlimited bandwidth, greater immunity to cross-talk,negligible power dissipation and other attractive features. It promises the development of silicon based light emitter, laser and other key photonic devices, thus paving a new era of monolithically integrated electronics and photonics sharing the same chip.
Portraithave received their BS in EEE from Bangladesh Univ.of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2009. Their research interests include photonic integrated circuit, silicon nanophotonics and nanoelectronics. They are member of IEEE, author of several research papers published in the proceedings of international conferences and lecturer in different universities.
