The rapid degradation of Se-doped GaAs0.6P0.4 light-emitting diodes is of prime importance in reliability studies of optical devices using III-V compound semiconductors. Marked changes are observed at the junction of Se-doped GaAs0.6P0.4 light-emitting diodes, because they degrade rapidly, in contrast to Te-doped GaAs0.6P0.4 light-emitting diodes, which degrade gradually. Here, this rapid degradation is investigated using aging tests under various conditions by a capacitance-voltage method and deep-level transient spectroscopy. We discuss the differences in the degradation mechanisms for the two diodes and propose a model for the rapid degradation.
