We report the development of 520–540nm green light emitting diodes (LEDs) grown along the nonpolar a axis of GaN. GaInN∕GaN-based quantum well structures were grown in homoepitaxy on both, a-plane bulk GaN and a-plane GaN on r-plane sapphire. LEDs on GaN show higher, virtually dislocation-free crystalline quality and three times higher light output power when compared to those on r-plane sapphire. Both structures show a much smaller wavelength blue shift for increasing current density (<10nm… Expand
