Silicon photonics is the study of the optical properties of the group-IV semiconductor and the design and fabrication of devices for generating, manipulating and detecting light. Silicon is prevalent in photodetectors, solar cells in particular. However, its indirect band structure means that it is not a natural creator of light.
