Paper Abstract

AlGaN UVC light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are attracting much attentions for applications of sterilization and water purification. Here, we demonstrated the improvement in LEE by employing a photonic crystal (PhC) structure in a p-GaN contact layer. FDTD Simulation showed a significant reflection of emitted light at the interface between the PhC and the active layer, which was a function of the distance between the PhC and the active layer as well as the PhC parameters. A UVC LED with a PhC structure showed an enhanced LEE by 1.9 times compared to an LED without a PhC structure.
