4 April 1997 High-performance AlGaInP light-emitting diodes
Author Affiliations +
A new class of LEDs based on the AlGaInP material system first became commercially available in the early 1990's. These devices benefit from a direct bandgap from the red to the yellow-green portion of the spectrum. The high efficiencies possible in AlGaInP across this spectrum have enabled new applications for LEDs including automotive lighting, outdoor variable message signs, outdoor large screen video displays, and traffic signal lights. A review of high-brightness AlGaInP LED technology will be presented.
