Abstract

Deep-UV distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) operating at λ = 220-250 nm with reflectivity close to unity were produced using epitaxial AlxGa1-xN/AlN superlattice structures grown on AlN/sapphire templates via metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Owing to the near-bandedge excitonic resonance in the AlxGa1-xN layers, the AlN mole fractions, x, were regulated to keep the reflective plateau within the enhanced refractive index contrast region between AlGaN and AlN of approximately 7%-11%. For DBRs incorporating high-index layers of AlGaN grown via a flow-rate modulated epitaxy technique, a reflectivity of 97% was achieved with a total pair number of 30.5 which was much smaller than number of pairs needed for the DBRs with conventionally grown AlGaN layers. The stopbands of these DBRs were about 6-9 nm.
