Abstract

The advantages of InGaN light-emitting diodes with GaN-InGaN-GaN barriers are studied. The energy band diagrams, carrier concentrations in the quantum wells, radiative recombination rate in the active region, light-current performance curves, and internal quantum efficiency are investigated. The simulation results show that the InGaN/GaN-InGaN-GaN light-emitting diode has better performance over its conventional InGaN/GaN and InGaN/InGaN counterparts due to the appropriately modified energy band diagrams which are favorable for the injection of electrons and holes and uniform distribution of these carriers in the quantum wells.
