CPQM Professor Nikolay Gippius, Senior Researcher Sergey Dyakov and their colleagues have found a way to increase photoluminescence in silicon

Skoltech researchers tamed silicon to interact with light for next-generation microelectronics. CPQM Professor Nikolay Gippius, Senior Researcher Sergey Dyakov and their colleagues have found a way to increase photoluminescence in silicon, the notoriously poor emitter and absorber of photons at the heart of all modern electronics. This discovery may pave the way to photonic integrated circuits, boosting their performance. Read on TASS, Naked Science (RUS), Phys.org, nanowerk.combioengineer.org (ENG)
