We have prepared bulk p-AlInGaN layers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with p-AlInGaN surface layers by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. By properly control the TMAI and TMIn flow rates, we could match the lattice constant of p-AlInGaN to that of GaN. It was found that surface of the LED with p-AlInGaN layer was rough with a high density of hexagonal pits. Although the forward voltage of the LED with p-AlInGaN layer was slightly larger, it was found that we can enhance the output power by 54% by using p-AlInGaN surface layer.
