Abstract

Due to the breakthroughs in technological advances in the development of III-nitride semiconductors made in the early 1990s, visible light-emitting diodes (LEDs) now occupy the dominant sector of the optoelectronics market. The emerging LED production is also stimulated by ever-increasing demands from solid-state lighting, which is expected to not only reduce world energy consumption but also change human conceptions of light quality and ways to utilize it. However, because of the constantly increasing capacity of production equipment and, in particular, of growth reactors, the cost of research and development in the LED industry continues to increase at a very high rate, making comprehensive investigations virtually impossible for all but the biggest universities and industrial players. In this situation, modeling and simulation are especially important, saving time, money, and manpower at the research and development stage.
