Efficient visible light emitting diodes have been fabricated from Ga1‐xAlxAs. Epitaxial layers were obtained by a modified solution growth technique. External quantum efficiencies of up to 3.3% have been measured at room temperature on diodes, which had their emission at 1.70 eV. The switching time for the light emission at 300°K was measured to be 60 nsec.

Heavily doped n-AlxGa1_xAs-p-GaAs heterojunctions prepared by liquid phase epitaxy have been investigated. At high bias (U > 1.40 V at 77 °K), the emission of the diodes for which the “tip”
PREPARATION OF VISIBLE‐LIGHT‐EMITTING p‐n JUNCTIONS IN AlAs
p‐n junctions have been formed for the first time in AlAs by diffusing Zn into single‐crystal n‐type vapor‐grown AlAs layers. I–V, C–V, and photovoltage measurements indicate well‐behaved junctions
The emission spectra of p‐AlxGa1−xAs–n‐GaAs heterojunctions
The emission spectra of p-AlxGa1−xAs-n-GaAs heterojunctions with Ge- and Zn-doped AlxGa1−xAs layers have been studied. The dependence of the emission peaks on current, voltage, and temperature are
Epitaxial Growth of III-V Compounds for Electroluminescent Light Sources
During the past decade, semiconductor junction electroluminescence has evolved from a laboratory phenomenon to a manufacturing technology. This success can be attributed to the extensive research in
Luminescence in Indirect Bandgap AlxGa1−xAs
A luminescence study was made of Sn‐, Te‐, or Zn‐doped AlxGa1−xAs in the Al‐rich composition range where the bandgap transition is indirect. Several luminescent bands attributed to excitons,
Preparation and Optical Properties of AlxGa1−xP
Aluminum‐doped GaP has been grown from solution with concentrations up to 30% Al. The crystals are stable and do not corrode in air. Evidence that the system is forming an Al–Ga alloy is provided by
