Research output: PatentPatent publication

Abstract

A monolithically integrated optical network device (20). The device comprises: a bipolar transistor (10) realized in a silicon substrate (11) that can be biased into an avalanche condition to emit photons; and a photonic bandgap (PBG) structure (22) monolithically integrated with the bipolar transistor (10) to act as an optical wave guide (16) for the photons generated by the bipolar transistor (10).
