Abstract

We report on a simple and reproducible method for fabricating InGaN/GaN multi-quantum-well (MQW) nanorod light-emitting diodes (LEDs), prepared by combining a SiO2 nanosphere lithography and dry-etch process. Focused-ion-beam (FIB)-deposited Pt was contacted to both ends of the nanorod LEDs, producing bright electroluminescence from the LEDs under forward bias conditions. The turn-on voltage in these nanorod LEDs was higher (13 V) than in companion thin film devices (3 V) and this can be attributed to the high contact resistance between the FIB-deposited Pt and nanorod LEDs and the damage induced by inductively-coupled plasma and Ga + -ions. Our method to obtain uniform MQW nanorod LEDs shows promise for improving the reproducibility of nano-optoelectronics.
