The light-emitting transistor (LET) shows promise as a fundamental circuit element for electronic-photonic integration. This paper reviews key characteristics of the transistor laser, discusses preliminary work on integration, and explores methods for heterogeneous integration of LET-based electronic-photonic circuit blocks with silicon CMOS in a wafer-scale process.
