Improved Performance of GaN-Based Ultraviolet LEDs with the Stair-like Si-Doping n-GaN Structure

Abstract "A method to improve the performance of ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) with stair-like Si-doping GaN layer is investigated. The high-resolution X-ray diffraction shows that the UV-LED with stair-like Si-doping GaN layer possesses better quality and a lower dislocation density. In addition, the experimental results demonstrate that light output power and wall plug effici... » read more
