GaN-based resonant cavity light-emitting diodes (RCLEDs) have been successfully fabricated on Si substrate by laser lift-off and wafer bonding techniques. A five-pair TiO2/SiO2 dielectric distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) (with 85% reflectivity) and an Ag layer (with 99% reflectivity) were employed as top and bottom mirrors, respectively, for front emission RCLEDs. The room temperature light output power of the RCLED was 1.5 times that of similar LED structures without a top DBR mirror under 20mA injection current. The cavity modes exhibit a linewidth of 5.5 nm at 525 nm wavelength, which corresponds to a quality factor about 100. Moreover, the full width at half maximum of the emission can be reduced to 35 nm, as a result of the effect of the resonant cavity.
