Abstract

The authors report the formation of air voids at GaN/cone-shaped pattern sapphire substrate interface by laser scribing and lateral etching with one-step growth. With 5 and 20 min lateral etching, it was found that pyramid-like air voids were formed with an average height of 0.98 and 1.9 $\mu$m, respectively, on top of each cone of the substrate. It was also found that we can enhance LED output power by 11.5% by etching the wafers for 20 min. It was also found that the simulated results agree well with the experimentally observed data.
