Surface plasmons for enhanced silicon light-emitting diodes and solar cells
Localized surface plasmons on metallic nanoparticles can be surprisingly efficient at coupling light into or out of a silicon waveguide. In this paper we review our recent work where we have demonstrated a factor of 8 times enhancement in the electroluminescence from a silicon-on-insulator light-emitting diode at 900 nm using silver nanoparticles, in the first report of a surface plasmon-enhanced silicon light-emitting diode. Our theoretical work has shown that the enhancement seen in this...[Show more]
