We have demonstrated the enhancement of a GaN-based light emitting diode (LED) by means of a selective etching technique. A conventional LED structure was periodically etched, to form periodic microholes. It showed an improvement of the light extraction efficiency (LEE) of approximately 15%, compared to that of a conventional LED. Furthermore, nano-sized(More)
We have found a method for a diameter-selective removal of metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (m-SWCNTs) from semiconducting (s-) ones by stirring or sonicating SWCNT powder in tetramethylene sulfone (TMS)/chloroform solution with nitronium hexafluoroantimonate (NO2SbF6: NHFA) and nitronium tetrafluoroborate (NO2BF4: NTFB). Positively charged nitronium(More)
We demonstrate spatial control of optical near-fields by femtosecond phase shaping in one-dimensional plasmonic structures. The near-field images display striking temporal-phase dependence, switching between double- and single-peak images within one lattice constant. The change of the near-field distribution is studied in the time and spectral domain. The(More)
We discuss the photoluminescence (PL) of semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides on the basis of experiments and a microscopic theory. The latter connects ab initio calculations of the single-particle states and Coulomb matrix elements with a many-body description of optical emission spectra. For monolayer MoS2, we study the PL efficiency at the(More)
We investigate the mechanism of light extraction enhancement of a GaN-based light-emitting diode (LED) grown on patterned sapphire substrate (PSS), that has ZnO nanorod arrays (NRAs) fabricated on top of the device using the hydrothermal method. We found that the light output power of the LED with ZnO NRAs increases by approximately 30% compared to the(More)
Carrier localization phenomena in indium-rich InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) grown on sapphire and GaN substrates were investigated. Temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, ultraviolet near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM), and confocal time-resolved PL (TRPL) spectroscopy were employed to verify the correlation between(More)
We report on the effect of embedded silica nanospheres on improving the performance of InGaN/GaN light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The silica nanospehres were coated on the selectively etched GaN using a spin-coating method. With the embedded silica nanospheres structures, we achieved a smaller reverse leakage current due to the selective defect(More)
We report the growth of high-quality GaN layer on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and graphene hybrid structure (CGH) as intermediate layer between GaN and sapphire substrate by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) and fabrication of light emitting diodes (LEDs) using them. The SWCNTs on graphene act as nucleation seeds, resulting in the(More)
Silver nanowires (AgNWs) have been successfully demonstrated to function as next-generation transparent conductive electrodes (TCEs) in organic semiconductor devices owing to their figures of merit, including high optical transmittance, low sheet resistance, flexibility, and low-cost processing. In this article, high-quality, solution-processed AgNWs with(More)
Despite the availability of large-area graphene synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD), the control of a uniform monolayer graphene remained challenging. Here, we report a method of acquiring monolayer graphene by laser irradiation. The accumulation of heat on graphene by absorbing light, followed by oxidative burning of upper graphene layers, which(More)
