|PCT/IB2013/054224||KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS N.V.||SINGH, Rajwinder|
The structural characteristics of the light-exiting surface of a light emitting device (200) are controlled so as to increase the light extraction efficiency of that surface (225) when the surface is roughened. A light emitting surface (225) comprising layers of materials with different durability to the roughening process exhibits a higher light extraction efficiency than a substantially uniform light emitting surface exposed to the same roughening process. In a GaN- type light emitting device (200), a thin layer (240) of AIGaN material on or near the light-exiting surface (225) creates sharper features after etching compared to the features created by conventional etching of a surface comprising only GaN material.
