Light-emitting device having element(s) for increasing the effective carrier capture cross-section of quantum wells

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #6878970.

Light-emitting devices are described. One example of a light-emitting device includes a first barrier layer and a second barrier layer, and a quantum well layer located between the first and second barrier layers. The first and second barrier layers are composed of gallium arsenide, and the quantum well layer is composed of indium gallium arsenide nitride. A first layer is located between the quantum well layer and the first barrier layer. The first layer has a bandgap energy between that of the first barrier layer and that of the quantum well layer. Another example of a light-emitting device includes a quantum well and a carrier capture element adjacent the quantum well. The carrier capture element increases the effective carrier capture cross-section of the quantum well.
