Abstract

Traditional implementation of photonic crystals (PhCs) on LED light emission surfaces results in weak coupling of light with the PhCs. Here we introduce a GaN-based LED surrounded with a nanohole PhC structure along the mesa edges. The laterally guided modes in the epi-structure can be effectively coupled with the two-dimensional periodic structure. The proposed structure results in the improvement of LED light extraction and provides flexibility of radiation directionality control.
