Nitride-based high power flip-chip near-ultraviolet (UV) light emitting diodes (LEDs) with a reflective mirror are fabricated by depositing Al onto a Si submount. It is demonstrated that the Al layer coated onto a Si submount can effectively reflect downward emitting photons for flip-chip LEDs. Although the operation voltage of the proposed LEDs is slightly increased, it is found that the output power is at least 30 higher than that of conventional LEDs. It is also found that flip-chip near-UV LEDs are more reliable than conventional non-flip-chip LEDs.
