SUNY Poly-led research published in Nature Scientific Reports details new technique to enhance light extraction efficiency of deep UV light-emitting diodes
Research spearheaded by SUNY Poly's Dr. Tinh Binh Tran has been published in Nature Scientific Reports, detailing a new method to "create a random nanophotonic crystal (NPhC) structure without lithography on the unpolished side of a single-side-polished sapphire substrate."
This effort has the potential for use in "enhancing the light-extraction efficiency (LEE) of deep ultra-violet light-emitting diodes (DUV-LEDs), and has never been built for DUV-LED applications before."
The SUNY Poly-led research was conducted in collaboration with investigators at the Advanced Semiconductor Laboratory in Saudi Arabia, and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, National Chiao Tung University, in Taiwan.
