Matrix-addressable arrays of InGaN micro-light-emitting diodes with 128 /spl times/ 96 pixels and a resolution of 1200 dpi have been fabricated using a novel "sloped sidewall" process. The devices have been fabricated on InGaN blue and green wafers, emitting light at the wavelengths of 468 and 508 nm, respectively. A simple circuit, which enables the display of an arrow pattern with /spl sim/60% of the pixels turned on, was used for device testing. At an injection current of 60 mA, the devices…
