We report the fabrication process and characterization of high resolution 873 x 500 pixels emissive arrays based on blue or green GaN/InGaN light emitting diodes (LEDs) at a reduced pixel pitch of 10 μm. A self-aligned process along with a combination of damascene metallization steps is presented as the key to create a common cathode which is expected to provide good thermal dissipation and prevent voltage drops between center and side of the micro LED matrix. We will discuss the challenges of a self-aligned technology related to the choice of a good P contact metal and will present our solutions for the realization of the metallic interconnections between the GaN contacts and the higher levels of metallization at such a small pixel pitch. Enhanced control of each technological step allows scalability of the process up to 4 inch LED wafers and production of high quality LED arrays. The very high brightness (up to 107 cd.m-2) and good external quantum efficiency (EQE) of the resulting device make these kind of micro displays suitable for augmented reality or head up display applications.
