Abstract

We present a study on the time evolution of the electroluminescence(EL)spectra of AlGaN-based deep ultraviolet light-emitting diodes(LEDs) under pulsed current pumping. The ELspectra peaks at 285 nm and 330 nm are found to result from recombination involving band-to-band and free carriers to deep acceptor level transitions. The 330 nm long-wavelength transitions to deep acceptor levels in the p-AlGaN layer as well as the nonradiative processes significantly influence the LED internal quantum efficiency.
