In this study, a green InGaN light-emitting diode with asymmetric AlGaN composition-graded barriers and without the use of an AlGaN electron blocking layer is presented to possess markedly enhanced optical and electrical performance. The simulation results show that the output power is increased by 10.0% and 33.2%, which corresponds to an increment of 7% and 29.4% in internal quantum efficiency, at 100 mA when the conventional GaN barriers are replaced by the asymmetric AlGaN composition-graded barriers and the commonly used AlGaN electron blocking layer is removed. The simulation results suggest that the improved device performance is due mainly to the markedly enhanced injection of holes into the active region.
