In this study, the photonic crystal structure is employed to increase both the light extraction efficiency and the modulation bandwidth of flip-chip GaN-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The finite difference time domain method is utilized to investigate the influence of structure of photonic crystals on the Purcell factor and light extraction efficiency of flip-chip GaN-based LEDs. Simulation results show that the modulation bandwidth is estimated to be 202 MHz at current densities of 1000 A/cm2. The experimental result of modulation bandwidth is in accord with the simulation. The optical f-3dB of the device achieves 212 MHz at current densities of 1000 A/cm2 and up to 285 MHz at current densities of 2000 A/cm2. This design of photonic crystal flip-chip LED has the potential for applications in high-frequency visible light communication. View Full-Text
