Relaxed InGaN platelets enabling red-emitting nanoLEDs

Room 152 (Upper Mezzanine South)


The large lattice mis-match between red-emitting active layers, with at least 35% indium in the QWs, and the GaN substrate still limits the efficiencies to very low values, typically <5%. We propose to use seeding techniques originally developed for nanowire growth, to seed the formation of ternary InGaN pyramids later converted into thin c-facet platelets of InGaN. The top-facet of each such template is on the scale 300nm to 1µm, thus better described as template for nanoLEDs. These can either be used as single nanoLED for a pixel or as an array of such nanoLEDs, constituting a complete microLED pixel.
