ABSTRACT
The effect of the last quantum barrier (LQB) on the internal quantum efficiency of GaN-light emitting diode (LED) was systematically investigated using a dual-wavelength GaN-LED design. Compared with a conventional GaN-LQB, a high indium contained In0.03Ga0.97N-LQB efficiently reduced the unintentional Mg impurity in the last quantum well and improved its photoluminescence and electroluminescence intensity up to 72% and 15%, respectively.
