Silicon nanophotonics is emerging as a new platform for the integration of photonic and electronic devices. Several examples of recent efforts on monolithic light sources based on silicon nanostructures will be presented and discussed. In particular it will be shown that silicon-on-insulator (SOI) is emerging as an interesting photonic material. The first electrically pumped silicon-on-insulator nano light source, tunable around 1300-1600nm range and operating at room temperature will be presented. H-related optically active ...
