To additional enhance the light extraction, the exposed N-face AlN was anisotropically etched in dilute KOH. The LEE of the AlGaN LED improved by ∼three× after KOH roughening at room temperature.
The high SF6 etch selectivity between SiC and AlN was essential for removing the SiC substrate and exposing a pristine, clean AlN surface. We demonstrated the epi-switch process by fabricating high mild extraction TFFC LEDs from AlGaN LEDs grown on SiC.

The rising demand for flexible RFID tags, wi-fi communications applications and wireless vitality harvesting techniques that may be produced at a low-cost is a key driver for this technology push. In this topical evaluate, we summarise current progress and status of versatile RF diodes and rectifying circuits, with specific give attention to materials and device processing aspects. To this finish, totally different households of supplies (e.g. versatile silicon, metallic oxides, organic and carbon nanomaterials), manufacturing processes (e.g. vacuum and solution processing) and system architectures (diodes and transistors) are in contrast. Although emphasis is placed on performance, functionality, mechanical flexibility and working stability, the various bottlenecks related to every know-how are additionally addressed. Finally, we present our outlook on the commercialisation potential and on the positioning of every materials class within the RF electronics panorama primarily based on the findings summarised herein.
This AlGaN TFFC LED course of establishes a viable path to excessive exterior quantum efficiency and energy conversion effectivity UV-C LEDs. Over the final decade, there has been increasing curiosity in transferring the research advances in radiofrequency (RF) rectifiers, the quintessential element of the chip in the RF identification (RFID) tags, obtained on rigid substrates onto plastic (versatile) substrates.
We optimized the inductively coupled plasma SF6 etch parameters to develop a substrate-elimination course of with high reliability and precise epitaxial control, with out creating micromasking defects or degrading the well being of the plasma etching system. The SiC etch price by SF6 plasma was ∼forty sixμm hr–1 at a excessive RF bias (four hundred W), and ∼7μm hr–1 at a low RF bias (forty nine W) with very high etch selectivity between SiC and AlN.
