Toshiba Lab Develops InGaN-based Red LED
First nitride-based red LED with the light output exceeding 1mW at 20 mA
Scientists at Toshiba's Research and Development Centre, Kawasaki, Japan have demonstrated the first nitride-based red LED with light output power exceeding 1mW at 20mA. Their findings were reported in the journal Applied Physics Express.
The InGaN-based red LED was grown on a c-plane sapphire substrate. Blue emission due to phase separation was successfully reduced in the red LED using an active layer consisting of 4-period InGaN multiple quantum wells embedding an AlGaN interlayer. Al content was 90percent on each quantum well.
The light output power and external quantum efficiency at a dc current of 20mA were 1.1 mW and 2.9 percent with the wavelength of 629nm, respectively.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
