Title:
LED ELEMENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/115800
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is an LED element that ensures horizontal current spreading within an active layer, improving light-emission efficiency, without causing problems due to lattice mismatch in an n-type semiconductor layer adjacent to said active layer. This LED element, which is obtained by inducing c-axis growth of nitride semiconductor layers on top of a support substrate, has the following: a first semiconductor layer comprising an n-type nitride semiconductor; a current-diffusion layer; an active layer comprising a nitride semiconductor; and a second semiconductor layer comprising a p-type nitride semiconductor. The current-diffusion layer contains a heterojunction between a third semiconductor layer comprising InxGa1 − xN (with 0 < x ≤ 0.05) and a fourth semiconductor layer comprising n-Aly1Gay2Iny3N (with 0 < y1 < 1, 0 < y2 < 1, 0 ≤ y3 ≤ 0.05, and y1+y2+y3 = 1), said third semiconductor layer being between 10 and 25 nm thick, inclusive.
