There is a growing demand for mercury-free, environmentally friendly, compact ultraviolet (UV) LEDs for applications such as water/air disinfection, bio-sensing, and epoxy curing. The AlxGa1-xN (0£x≤1) alloy has a tunable bandgap from 3.4 to 6.1 eV which coversalmost the entire UV spectral region from 360 to 210 nm,making it particular suitable for the realization of UV-LEDs. However, the UV-LED performance has not yet reached to the level obtained in highly commercialized InGaN-based blue LED counterpart.
Here, we demonstrate a new approach to enhance the luminescence of UV-LEDs via the introduction of AlGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) consisting of both III-polarity and N-polarity domains, forming a lateral-polarity-structure (LPS). The LPS-MQW with precise control of the domain dimension is achieved via a pre-patterned AlN buffer layer on sapphire substrates.Enhanced luminescence from LPS MQW is attributed to a synergetic effect of 3D nature of MQW, lateral confinement of carriers due to variation in QW thickness and surface potential differences. Direct polarity determination of AlGaN/GaN MQWs was realized through HR-STEM. This work suggests that the introduction of LPS in AlGaN-based MQWs can provide unprecedented tunability in achieving higher luminescence of such emitters.
In addition to LPS-based UV-LEDs, the application of LPS in GaN-based Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD) will also be briefly discussed. SBDs are fabricated on LPS GaN as well as conventional undoped GaN. Current-voltage (I-V) characteristic revealed that the SBD fabricated on LPS GaN has higher forward current, barrier height closer to 0.7 eV, and ideality factor closer to unity compared to SBD fabricated on conventional GaN, demonstrating a novel approach for the development of high-performance SBD with low on-state resistance (Ron) and high rectification ratio.
