In this work, we design and fabricate a deep ultraviolet (DUV) light-emitting array consisting of 10 × 10 micro-LEDs (μ-LEDs) with each device having 20 μm in diameter. Strikingly, the array demonstrates a significant enhancement of total light output power by nearly 52% at the injection current of 100 mA, in comparison to a conventional large LED chip whose emitting area is the same as the array. A much higher (~22%) peak external quantum efficiency, as well as a smaller efficiency droop for μ-LED array, was also achieved. The numerical calculation reveals that the performance boost can be attributed to the higher light extraction efficiency at the edge of each μ-LED. Additionally, the far-field pattern measurement shows that the μ-LED array possesses a better forward directionality of emission. These findings shed light on the enhancement of the DUV LEDs performance and provide new insights in controlling the light behavior of the μ-LEDs.

The AlGaN-based deep ultraviolet (DUV) light-emitting diode (LED) is an alternative DUV light source to replace traditional mercury-based lamps. However, the state-of-the-art DUV LEDs currently exhibit poor wall-plug efficiency and low light output power, which seriously hinder their commercialization. In this work, we design and report a tunnel-junction-cascaded (TJC) DUV LED, which enables multiple radiative recombinations within the active regions. Therefore, the light output power of the TJC-DUV LEDs is more than doubled compared to the conventional DUV LED. Correspondingly, the wall-plug efficiency of the TJC-DUV LED is also significantly boosted by 25% at 60 mA.
