Diffusion-driven current transport to near-surface nanostructures

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    Diffusion-driven current transport (DDCT) has recently been proposed as a new way to organize the current injection in nanoscale optoelectronic devices. The very recent first proof-of-principle experiments have also shown that DDCT works as predicted theoretically. In this work we perform simulations on DDCT-based III-Nitride devices and demonstrate how the optimization of DDCT differs significantly from the optimization of conventional double heterostructure based devices.
