Efficiency and reliability of high-performance LEDs

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The goal of this project is the study of the physical mechanisms that limit the efficiency and the reliability of GaN-based LEDs.

We will study in particular the following aspects:

1. The recombination processes in high-efficiency LED diodes

2. The physical origin of the efficiency droop in high efficiency LEDs

3. The physical mechanisms of degradation of the LEDs

4. We will also study the role of current, temperature, humidity, electrical overstress and electrostatic discharge in inducing device degradation

The activity will be carried out in the laboratories of the Department of Engineering of the University of Padua.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
