Resonant cavity light emitting diode (RCLED) structure was grown using digital AlGaN/GaN Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) and Ag-based p-contact. A five period of InGaN/GaN multi-quantum well (MQW) layers are placed between these two high reflectance mirrors. Digital AlGaN/GaN DBR have a maximum reflectivity of about 60 % at 445 nm and 90 % at 439 nm for 6 period and 12 period, respectively. Ag-based p-contact exhibits an average reflectance of around 85-90 % for a wavelength of 400-600 nm. The light output intensity of the RCLEDs with 12 period digital AlGaN/GaN DBR is higher by a factor of 3 as compared to that of the similar structure without digital AlGaN/GaN DBR at an injection current of 50 mA.
