We report on fabrication and characterization of blue GaN–InGaN multi-quantum well (MQW)light-emitting diodes(LEDs) over (111) silicon substrates. Device epilayers were fabricated using unique combination of molecular beam epitaxy and low-pressure metalorganic chemical vapor depositiongrowth procedure in selective areas defined by openings in a SiO2mask over the substrates. This selective area deposition procedure in principle can produce multicolor devices using a very simple fabrication procedure. The LEDs had a peak emission wavelength of 465 nm with a full width at half maximum of 40 nm. We also present the spectral emission data with the diodes operating up to 250 °C. The peak emission wavelengths are measured as a function of both dc and pulse bias current and plate temperature to estimate the thermal impedance.
