We demonstrate hybrid inorganic-organic light-emitting devices with peak electroluminescence (EL) at a wavelength of 868 nm using silicon nanocrystals (SiNCs). An external quantum efficiency of 0.6% is realized in the forward-emitted direction, with emission originating primarily from the SiNCs. Microscopic characterization indicates that complete coverage of the SiNCs on the conjugated polymer hole-transporting layer is required to observe efficient EL.
