Optimized electron blocking layer for UV-B light emitting diodes

(In)AlGaN-based UV-B LEDs are promising candidates to replace established UV light sources in various applications. However, high defect densities in these materials, among others, limit their efficiency. The FBH has therefore studied the influence of EBL doping and EBL material composition on the emission power of 310 nm LEDs.

    GaN HEMT-based THz detectors

    The FBH develops highly sensitive, fast-response and broadband THz detectors for CW and pulsed operation. Since fast THz cameras with high sensitivity are mandatory for many industrial applications, FBH is also working on focal plane arrays of THz detectors to transfer the excellent single detector performance to a THz camera.
