Interest in obtaining useful light emission from silicon- based materials has never been greater. This is because there is a strong demand for optoelectronic devices based on silicon and also because there has recently been significant progress in materials engineering methods. Here we review the latest developments in this work, which is aimed at overcoming the indirect band gap limitations in light emission from silicon. One promising new approach, based on thin-layer Si/SiO2 superlattices, is reviewed in detail. The incorporation of these different materials into devices is described and future device prospects are assessed.
