The Er-related peaks at 1.54μm and 0.99μm were observed by applying dc voltages to Er-implanted InP layer. These peaks assigned to the intra-4f transitions of Er3+ from 4I13/2 to 4I15/2 and from 4I11/2 to 4I15/2, respectively. No other emission bands were observed in the wavelength range from 0.8 to 1.6μm. The emission characteristics and fine structure of the 1.54μm emission spectrum are discussed in comparison with those of photoluminescence.
