The thermal property of tunnel-regenerated multiactive-region (TRMAR) light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is studied in detail in this letter. These devices have the advantages of high quantum efficiency and high output optical power. To obtain the same output optical power, it has been shown that the thermal performance for TRMAR LEDs is much better than that of conventional ones. The heat generated from the reverse-biased tunneling junction in TRMAR LEDs is small and can be neglected as compared with heat produced from the active region as illustrated in scanning thermal microscopy result. An experimental comparison shows that the improved input power dependence on the luminescence intensity proves that TRMAR LEDs have better thermal properties than those of conventional ones.
