The design process of superluminescent diode has been discussed on the basis of nitride diodes with bend-waveguide geometry. The devices were fabricated by MOVPE technique on bulk GaN substrates and emitted light at the wavelength of around 420nm. The effectiveness of the cavity suppression design was confirmed by measurements of high-resolution emission spectra. Further optimization was carried out by appropriate selection of the angles of the waveguide bend and the chip length. Thus; we succeeded in fabrication of high optical power superluminescent diodes with slope efficiency fully comparable to that of laser diodes (greater than 0.9 W/A).
