Silicon photonics is rapidly growing and a number of Si-based active and passive components have recently been demonstrated. We demonstrate new functionality of Er-doped silicon: a memory effect in electroluminescence. This finding opens a prospect of necessary, and thus far not available, component for Si optoelectronics-a fully complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor-compatible electro-optical converter with a memory function, operating in the technologically important 1.5-mum band. When developed and optimized, prospect applications could include optical intraand inter-chip connectors and volatile flash memory elements
