    Recently, we presented a novel design for a silicon LED in SmartCUT™ SOI wafers. It exhibits a record quantum efficiency for SOI-based silicon LEDs and opens the way to the integration of light emitters in a VLSI process on SOI. In this paper, we present first experimental and modeling results showing that this new design has the potential to switch on and off faster than 1 MHz – sufficiently fast for several commercial applications such as an integrated optocoupler.
