Forward-bias stress in salty water vapor can quickly degrade the InGaN/GaN LEDs. To examine the weakness of the device, electrical, optical, and material analyses and characterizations were performed to investigate the failure mechanism. Corrosion of the electrode and Au atom diffusion might result in damages of the device. Results indicate that forward-bias stress in salty water vapor can quickly influence the material properties, optical behaviors, and electrical characteristics of the LED device.
