Title Linear Cascade Arrays of GaN Based Green Light Emitting Diodes for High-Speed and High-Power Performance

  • Abstract We demonstrate a linear cascade GaN based Light Emitting Diode (LED) arrays at a wavelength around ~520nm for improving the output power and differential efficiency of a single LED. Arrays with up to four LEDs connected in series, we can achieve four times improvement of output power under the same bias current (differential quantum efficiency) compared with the control, which is a single LED.
    We have also measured their modulation-speed performance and both devices show similar 3-dB bandwidth (90MHz) under the same bias currents. The measurement results indicate that the cascade connection has the advantages of greatly enhanced external differential efficiency and the ability to be driven by the constant-voltage power supply directly. The current crowding problem and degradation of RC-limited bandwidth in large active area LED can also be minimized through the use of such connection.
