Abstract

Experimentally measured optical properties of photonic crystal LEDs are reported here. Photonic crystal and photonic quasi-crystal structures were fabricated on GaN epilayer LED wafer material using both direct-write electron beam lithography and nanoimprint lithography. Some of these structures were processed to make finished LEDs. Both electroluminescence and photoluminescence measurements were performed on these structures. Devices were characterized for their current-voltage characteristics, emission spectra, far-field emission pattern, and angular emission pattern. These results are useful for fabricating photonic crystal LEDs and assessing their operational properties.
