Epitaxially-grown Si/SiGe quantum dot complexes produce efficient photoluminescence and electroluminescence in the desired spectral range of 1.3-1.6μm. The latest progress in our understanding of the physics of carrier recombination in Si/SiGe nanostructures is reviewed, and a new route toward CMOS compatible light emitters is proposed.
