Paper Abstract

PdZn was used to improve the electrical properties of p-GaN annealed at low activation temperature for high efficiency green light-emitting diodes (LEDs). A hole concentration of p-GaN annealed at 600 °C with PdZn was almost 28 times higher than that of p-GaN annealed at 800 °C without PdZn. SIMS analysis showed that hydrogen concentration in p-GaN annealed with PdZn is decreased compared to that without using PdZn because the PdZn enhances hydrogen desorption from the Mg-doped p-GaN film at low temperature. The green MQW LED annealed at 600 °C using PdZn showed improved electrical characteristic and optical output power compared to that annealed at 800 °C without using PdZn. These results are attributed to the increase of hole concentration of p-GaN due to removal of hydrogen in p-GaN by PdZn and the decrease in thermal damage of MQW at low activation temperature.
