gap. The LEDs realized using two differently doped semiconductors that are the same material is called a homojunction. When they are realized using different. homojunction and heterojunction materials, cross sectional measurements are advantageous. . This includes the fabrication of LEDs, lasers, photodiodes, and . Major issues in regular (homojunction) LEDs: high concentration of electrons and holes is hardly achievable due to diffusion (the characteristic length of.

In homojunctions, carriers diffuse, on average, over the diffusion lengths Ln and Lp before recombining.

The dark lines forming a cross-hatch pattern are due to misfit dislocations after Fitzgerald et al. Part b shows p-n junction displacement caused by high Zn doping of the upper cladding region after Schubert et al.

Dependence of the internal differential quantum efficiency emitted photons per injected electron on temperature for different p-type doping levels in the cladding layer after Kazarinov and Pinto, The abrupt junction is more resistive than the graded junction due to the electron homojunftion forming at the abrupt junctions after Schubert et al.

Under forward bias conditions, minority carriers diffuse into the neutral re- gions where they recombine. Band diagram of a forward-biased double heterostructure. The confinement layers are frequently called cladding layers.

Ked Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The barrier-well interface of the abrupt junction is more resistive than the graded junction due to barriers forming at the interfaces. The Al content in the electron-blocking layer is higher than in the p-type confinement layer.

Carrier capture and escape in a double hetero- structure.


The structure uses Zn as a p-type dopant. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

In heterojunctions, carriers are confined to the well region. In homojunctions, carriers are distributed over the diffusion length.

This article does not cite any sources. Dependence of the luminous efficiency of an AlGaInP double heterostructure LED emitting at nm on n-type confinement layer doping concentration after Sugawara et al.

Part a shows no p-n junction displacement. Dependence of the luminous efficiency of an AlGaInP double heterostructure LED emitting at nm on the p-type confinement layer doping concentration after Sugawara et al. In most practical cases a homojunction occurs at the interface between an n-type donor doped and p-type acceptor doped semiconductor such as siliconthis is called a p-n junction.

An n-type to n-type junction, for example, would be considered a homojunction if the doping levels are different. Illustration of a double heterostructure consisting of a bulk or quantum well hmoojunction region and two confinement layers. Also shown is the carrier distribution in the active layer.

This is not a necessary condition as the only requirement is that the same semiconductor same band gap is found on both sides of the junction, in contrast to a heterojunction.
