Prototype blue microdisplays have been fabricated from InGaN/GaN quantum wells. The device has a dimension of 0.5 × 0.5 mm2 and consists of 10× 10 pixels 12 μm in diameter. Emission properties such as electroluminescence spectra, output power versus forward current (L-I) characteristic, viewing angle, and uniformity have been measured. Due to the unique properties of III-nitride wide-band-gap semiconductors, microdisplays fabricated from III nitrides can potentially provide unsurpassed performance, including high-brightness/resolution/contrast, high-temperature/ high-power operation, high shock resistance, wide viewing angles, full-color spectrum capability, long life, high speed, and low-power consumption, thus providing an enhancement and benefit to the present capabilities of miniature display systems.
