We have fabricated UV-emitters such as UV-light emitting diode (UV-LED) and UV-laser diode (UV-LD) on sapphire substrates. The combination of low-temperature-deposited AlN interlayer and lateral seeding epitaxy (Hetero-ELO) yielded crack-free and low-dislocation-density AlGaN. The light output power of GaN/AlGaN multi-quantum wells active layer based UV-LED monotonically decreased with the increase of threading dislocations. Moreover, we have demonstrated a UV-LD grown on this low-dislocation-density AlGaN. The lasing wavelength under pulsed current injection at room temperature was 350.9 nm. We also present violet and UV-LEDs grown on ZrB2 substrate. The violet LED exhibits excellent linearity of L-I characteristic and sharp single spectrum, and vertical conduction through nitride and ZrB2 interface has been confirmed in the UV-LED. We also present the growth of AlN single crystals by sublimation method.
