Paper Abstract

We analytically investigated the influence of grating shape on polarization characteristics of the emission from a GaN-based light-emitting diode with a low-contrast subwavelength grating (SWG), such as SiO2-SWG. The electromagnetic field distribution, calculated using the finite-difference time-domain method, predicted that the polarization characteristics strongly depend on the grating side slope. A trapezoid SiO2-SWG was fabricated on the GaN-based-LED using electron-beam lithography. The optical characteristics of the electroluminescence agreed with those theoretically predicted, and we succeeded in demonstrating the influence of grating shape on the polarization of LED emission.
