In this letter, we demonstrate GaN-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with high-quality heavily-Si-doped n-GaN prepared on a nano-rod GaN (NR-GaN) template. With 20-mA current injection, it was found that light output power (LOP) can be enhanced 29.0%, as compared to the conventional LED. Enhancement of the LOP can be attributed to the improvement of the current spreading and the increase of light extraction efficiency by using the heavily-Si-doped n-GaN prepared on the NR-GaN template.
