Size-controllable nanopyramids photonic crystal selectively grown on p-GaN for enhanced light-extraction of light-emitting diodes.


Size-controllable p-GaN hexagonal nanopyramids (HnPs)-photonic crystal (PhC) structures were selectively grown on flat p-GaN layer for the elimination of total internal reflection of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The LEDs with HnPs-PhC of 46.3% bottom fill factor (PhC lattice constant is 730 nm) showed an improved light output power by 99.9% at forward current of 350 mA compared to the reference LEDs with flat p-GaN layer. We confirmed the effect of HnPs-PhC with different bottom fill factors and the effect of nanopyramid-shaped and nanocolumn-shaped PhC on the light-extraction of LEDs was also investigated by using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain simulations.
