Abstract

In this study, the structures of InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with p-n quantum barriers in various positions were proposed to investigate the efficiency droop behavior for blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The simulated electric field diagrams showed that the quantum well (QW) sandwiched by the p-n quantum barriers had a less electric field than the other QWs due to the original polarization-related electric field was partially balanced off by the built-in electric field of the p-n quantum barriers. In addition, the simulation results demonstrated that by selecting suitable position of p-n quantum barriers, the distribution of carriers could be effectively improved; hence the droop behavior could also be suppressed.
