    We have investigated the low-temperature properties of a GaAs n-i-n diode where the intrinsic region consists of a linearly graded gap of AlGaAs, and is surrounded by lightly doped GaAs regions. The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics are strongly asymmetric and are dominated by the graded...

    Degradation of GaAs/AlGaAs double-heterostructure light-emitting diodes under accelerated aging tests has been investigated through cathodoluminescence measurements. We observed an increase in intensity of the band-edge emission and a decrease in that of defect-related deep level emision for the...
