gap. The LEDs realized using two differently doped semiconductors that are the same material is called a homojunction. When they are realized using different. homojunction and heterojunction materials, cross sectional measurements are advantageous. . This includes the fabrication of LEDs, lasers, photodiodes, and . Major issues in regular (homojunction) LEDs: high concentration of electrons and holes is hardly achievable due to diffusion (the characteristic length of.

The different doping level will cause band bendingand depletion region will be formed at the interface, as shown in the right figure. Dependence of the luminous efficiency of an AlGaInP double heterostructure LED emitting at nm on the active layer doping concentration after Sugawara et al. In homojunctions, carriers are distributed over the diffusion length. Carrier capture and escape in a double hetero- structure.

The confinement layers are frequently called cladding layers. Part a hoojunction no p-n junction displacement. December Learn how and when to remove this template message.

In most practical cases a homojunction occurs at the interface between an n-type donor doped and p-type acceptor doped semiconductor such as siliconthis is called a p-n junction.

Articles lacking sources from December All articles lacking sources. A homojunction is a semiconductor interface that occurs between layers of similar semiconductor material, these materials have equal band homojunctiob but typically have different ped. Part b shows p-n junction displacement caused by high Zn doping of the upper cladding region after Schubert et al.

In heterojunctions, carriers are confined to the well region. The Al content in the electron-blocking layer is higher than in ldd p-type confinement layer. Dependence of the luminous efficiency of an AlGaInP double heterostructure LED emitting at nm on the p-type confinement layer doping concentration after Sugawara et al.

This page was last edited on 14 Augustat Band diagram of a an abrupt n-type-n-type heterojunction and b a graded heterojunction of two semiconductors with different bandgap energy. In homojunctions, carriers diffuse, on average, over the diffusion lengths Ln and Lp before recombining.

Chapter 7

This article does not cite any sources. In heterojunctions, homojinction are confined by the heterojunction barriers. An n-type to n-type junction, for example, would be considered a homojunction if the doping levels are different. Views Read Edit View history. This is not a necessary condition as the only requirement is that the same semiconductor same band homojunctino is found on both sides of the junction, in contrast to a heterojunction.
