We report on the vertically stacked color tunable light-emitting diodes (LEDs) fabricated using wafer bonding with an indium tin oxide (ITO) layer and transfer printing by the laser lift-off process. Employing optically transparent and electrically conductive ITO as an adhesion layer enables to bond the GaN-based blue and AlGaInP-based yellow LEDs. We find out that the interdiffusion of In, O, and Ga at the interface between ITO and GaP allows the strong bonding of the heterogeneous optoelectronic materials and the integration of two different color LEDs on a single substrate. The efficacy of this method is demonstrated by showing the successful control of color coordinate from the vertically stacked LEDs by modulating the individual intensity of blue and yellow emissions.

We investigated air gap-induced hybrid distributed Bragg reflectors (AH-DBRs) for use in high brightness and reliable AlGaInP-based light emitting diodes (LEDs). An air gap was inserted into the side of DBRs by selectively etching the AlxGa1-xAs DBR structures. With the AH-DBR structures, the optical output power of LEDs was enhanced by 15% compared to LEDs having conventional DBRs, due to the effective reflection of obliquely incident light by the air gap structures. In addition, the electrical characteristics showed that the AH-DBR LED is a desirable structure for reducing the leakage current, as it suppresses unwanted surface recombinations.

In this paper, a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) for a bottom reflector in 850-nm GaAs infrared light-emitting diodes (Ir-LEDs) was developed and optimized. At an 850-nm wavelength, markedly improved reflection spectra were observed from DBRs consisting of Al1-xGaxAs/AlxGa1-xAs materials. In addition, the reflection spectra of Al1-xGaxAs/AlxGa1-xAs-based DBRs was found to increase with increasing difference between the high and the low refractive indices. At multiple layers of 10 pairs, maximal reflection spectra having about a 92% reflectivity were obtained from DBRs consisting of GaAs/AlAs. At 20 pairs, however, outstanding reflection spectra having a higher reflectivity and broader width were clearly observed from DBRs consisting of Al0.1Ga0.9As/Al0.9Ga0.1As. Some incident light appears to have been absorbed and confined by the narrow bandgap of the GaAs material used in DBRs consisting of GaAs/AlAs. This fact could be supported by the decrease in the reflectivity of the shorter wavelength region in DBRs consisting of GaAs/AlAs. For this reason, a remarkable output power could be obtained from the 850-nm GaAs Ir-LED chip having a DBR consisting of Al0.1Ga0.9As/Al0.9Ga0.1As. © 2016, The Korean Physical Society.

Recently, AlGaInP-based light emitting diodes (LEDs) have experienced an impressive evolution in both device performance and market volume. However, development of new applications is required in order to realize their full potential in areas such as use as a light source for auto focusing in digital cameras, special illumination for particular functions in agriculture, and in full color displays. To enlarge their utility in these applications, it is necessary to fabricate and understand a new structure capable of emitting longer wavelengths of around 700 nm. In particular, AlGaInP heterostructure LEDs are lattice-matched with respect to the GaAs substrate, which limits the emitting spectrum to around 650 nm at the longer peak wavelength side. To fabricate an LED structure capable of emitting at a 700 nm peak wavelength, the composition (x) of GaxIn1-xP material in the active layer requires a compressive strain of larger than 1 %. This large lattice mismatch, however, causes significant problems in terms of both growth and device properties due to the formation of defects. To overcome these problems, it is necessary to relieve the well strain via the formation of islands, referred to as a Stranski-Krastanow (S-K) growth mode, in order to prevent the generation of dislocations [1,2]. However, in AlGaInP-based LEDs emitting at a 700 nm peak wavelength, the effects of well strain on the epitaxial growth and the realization of device performance has yet to be extensively studied. In this study, we investigate the behaviors of morphological and optical characteristics on the composition of Ga0.33In0.67P material and demonstrate the performance of a device emitting at around 700 nm using quantum dot (QD)-based LEDs. © OSA 2013.

The effects of using an n-AlGaAs layer to improve the efficiency of wafer-bonded reflective 590 nm AlGaInP light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were investigated. This n-AlGaAs layer was grown on an optically absorbing substrate using metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) during AlGaInP LED epitaxial growth. It was found that the inserted n-AlGaAs layer effectively acted as both an etching stop layer and ohmic contact layer. Here, the n-AlGaAs layer was located on the top layer of the reflective AlGaInP LED. As a result, a 1.2-fold relative increase in output power was observed from the reflective AlGaInP LED chip having the n-AlGaAs top layer. This increase was subsequently attributed to the increase in the current spreading effect due to insertion of the n-AlGaAs layer. © 2015 The Electrochemical Society. All rights reserved.

The characteristics of AlGaAs films grown directly on a lattice-mismatched Al2O3 substrate were investigated. Metal organic chemical vapor deposition based AlGaAs films were grown on a transparent Al 2O3 substrate, using a GaAs film as the buffer layer for the post-growth of the AlGaAs film. It was found that a higher Al composition in AlGaAs film on the Al2O3 substrate was observed when GaAs buffer layer was thermally treated. Notably, a resistivity of 0.018 Ω/cm was obtained from the AlGaAs film grown on the Al2O3 substrate, almost equivalent to that for GaAs substrate. These results thus support the position that AlGaAs films grown on a transparent Al 2O3 substrate can be attractive for use in solar cells or light-emitting diodes. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) based aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) used as the bottom window (BW), which was inserted between the light-emitting diode (LED) structure and the absorbing substrate, has been proposed to improve the extraction efficiency of 630nm AlGaInP LEDs. In an AlGaInP LED with this AlGaAs BW, enhanced light extraction efficiency was observed, as some of the light emitted from the active region to the absorbing substrate could pass out of the LED through the BW. In addition, it was found that a output power of 8mW was obtained from an AlGaInP LED with both a BW and a distribution Bragg reflector (DBR), a nearly two fold improvement of over 4.2mW that was obtained from a conventional one at an injection current of 80 mA. © 2013 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.

The present invention relates to a high-efficiency AlGaInP light-emitting diode directly grown on a transparent substrate and a method of manufacturing the same, and, more particularly, to a high-efficiency AlGaInP light-emitting diode grown on a sapphire substrate and a method of manufacturing the same. According to the present invention, an AlGaInP light-emitting diode is manufactured using an inexpensive sapphire substrate having high transmittance to ultraviolet rays, infrared rays and visible rays. The AlGaInP light-emitting diode according to the present invention can emit light with high efficiency because a lower substrate does not absorb light, and can be effectively manufactured because a process of removing a GaAs or a process of bonding a sapphire substrate is not conducted.
