Abstract:Recently, different and apparently contradicting results were published regarding the influence of crystal defects on the light emission efficiency of silicon LEDs at room temperature (Wai Lek Ng). In this paper we report our results on light emission of silicon p/sup +/n diodes with various defect engineering approaches. The p/sup +/ region was formed either by ion implantation or by diffusion; and optionally, additional lattice damage was created by silicon ion implantation. The experiments clearly indicate that lattice defects have a detrimental effect on light emission, contrary to the results published in recent years.
