Summary: 
The historical review of Taiwan's researching activities on the features of PECVD grown SiOx are also included to realize the performance of Si nanocrystal based MOSLED made by such a Si-rich SiOx film with embedded Si nanocrystals on conventional Si substrate. A surface nano-roughened Si substrate with interfacial Si nano-pyramids at SiOx/Si interface are also reviewed, which provide the capabilities of enhancing the surface roughness induced total-internal-reflection relaxation and the Fowler-Nordheim tunneling based carrier injection. These structures enable the light emission and extraction from a metal-SiOx-Si MOSLED.
