Abstract (English)

Nano-structuring is a promising way to improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes (LEDs): two-dimensional photonic crystals can help to extract light from LEDs with the option of shaping the emission pattern, but can also increase the internal quantum efficiency in combination with surface plasmon polaritons. Both concepts are investigated theoretically in order to quantify for the first ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Nanostrukturierung stellt eine vielversprechende Möglichkeit dar die Effizienz von lichtemittierenden Dioden (LEDs) zu erhöhen. Zum einen können zweidimensionale photonische Kristalle dazu verwendet werden, das Licht aus LEDs zu extrahieren sowie das Fernfeld zu beeinflussen. Zum anderen können sie mit Hilfe von Oberflächenplasmonpolaritonen die interne Quanteneffizienz steigern. Beide Konzepte ...
