The authors propose a simple method to further improve light extraction efficiency of GaN-based phosphoric acid etched light-emitting diodes (LED) by forming a light guiding structure on a sapphire substrate. Compared with conventional LEDs, it was found that the output intensity of the phosphoric acid etched LEDs with a light guiding structure was 40% higher. It was also found that the light guiding structure can effectively enhance LED output intensity in the vertical directions.
