Paper Abstract

A new semiphenomenological statistical kinetic model for changes in the material structure and gradual degradation in semiconductor lasers and light emitting diodes is presented. In this model, the injection of a non-equilibrium electron-hole plasma, increases the probability of struc-tural changes and reduces their effective activation energy due to the interaction of carriers with material atoms hopping over energy barriers. Arrhenius like expressions for the degradation rate with the pre-exponential factor and the effective activation energy as explicit functions of the material parameters are derived. Good agreement with experimental data is obtained.
