Abstract

A comprehensive numerical model for distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) based on thin-film optics is developed. Detailed refractive-index calculations for GaN, AlN, AlGaN, and InGaN can also be included in this numerical model. This model can predict DBR performances for refractive-index variations, layer-thickness fluctuations, and the number of quarter-wave stack pairs in DBR as well different light polarizations.
