We have fabricated a-plane light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with inserted InGaN/GaN superlattices. The structural characteristics and device performance of a-plane light-emitting diodes with/without superlattices were also identified. Transmission electron microscope (TEM) images revealed that the threading dislocation (TD) density for the sample using superlattices was reduced from 3 × 1010 cm-2 down to ̃9 ̃ 109 cm-2. The electroluminescence (EL) intensity of the sample with InGaN/GaN superlattices was enhanced by a factor of 3.42 times to that of the conventional sample without InGaN/GaN superlattices. Furthermore, we observed that the polarization degree of a-plane LEDs with superlattices (56.3%) was much higher than that without superlattices (27.4%). A series of experiments demonstrated that the feasibility of using InGaN/GaN superlattices for the TD reduction and the improvement of luminescence performance in a-plane III-nitride devices.
