Paper Abstract

10We have investigated efficient light outcoupling from light- emitting diodes (LEDs) by introducing lateral tapers. The concept is based on light generation in the very central area of a circularly symmetric structure. After propagating between two highly reflecting mirrors light is outcoupled in tapered mesa region. By proper processing we achieve quantum and wallplug efficiencies of almost 30% for outcoupling via a planar surface or, respectively, 45% and 44% for encapsulated devices.
