Based on the Si CMOS process, a low operating voltage and low power light emitting device is presented. It has a power transfer efficiency of 1 to 2 orders higher than previous reports and can be used as a high efficiency photodiode. Configurations using the same structure as both the light emitter and the optical receiver, and employing a simple modulation instrument is then proposed for applications in the chip-to-chip optical alignment and the signal transmission. Only single power supply is required in the emitter-receiver circuits and is compatible with other integrated circuits made by the CMOS process.
