We demonstrate a GaN-based phosphor-free near-white-light light-emitting-diode (LED) structure that operates in the visible wavelengths and offers broadening and flattening optical bandwidth performance. The incorporation of GaN-based dual wavelengths (blue and green) multiple-quantum-wells with a transverse p-n junction produces a device which can directly generate stable and near visible white-light emissions. The shape of the optical spectra (440-560 nm) are invariable from low to very high levels of bias currents. The problems of nonuniform carrier distribution and bias dependent electroluminescence spectra that occur in traditional phosphor-free white-light or near-white-light LEDs (with vertical p-n junctions) are eliminated by the demonstrated structure.
