Light-emitting SiGe alloys developed

This post was originally published on this site

Researchers from the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed light-emitting, silicon-germanium alloys. As a result, the development of a silicon laser capable of integration into today’s chips is within reach for the first time. Researchers have tried to build silicon or germanium-based lasers,  but silicon normally crystallizes …
