Paper Abstract

High performance 375-nm ultraviolet (UV) InGaN/AlGaN light-emitting diodes (LEDs) was developed using a heavy Si-doping technique with metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). From the transmission electron microcopy (TEM) image, the dislocation density was reduced after inserting a heavily Si-doping growth mode transition layer (GMTL) between un-doped GaN layer and Si-doped Al0.02Ga0.98N contact layer. The internal quantum efficiency (IQE) of the sample with GMTL measured by power-dependent photoluminescence shows 39.4% improved compared with the sample without GMTL. When the vertical type LED chips (size: 1mm×1mm) driving by a 350-mA current, the output powers of the LEDs with and without GMTL were measured to be 286.7 mW and 204.2 mW, respectively. As much as 40.4% increased light output power was achieved. Therefore, using the GMTL to reduce dislocation defects would be a promising prospective for InGaN/AlGaN UV LEDs to achieve high internal quantum efficiency.
