Abstract: We review the status of silicon-based optoelectronics with emphasis on light emitting diodes. Erbium-doped Si, por-Si and silicon-based superlattices and nanostructures are discussed. The origin behind light emission in silicon with feature sizes below about 60 nm still remains poorly understood.
