Microscopic electroluminescence (EL) and photoluminescence (PL) measurements of high-biased AlGaN/GaN high-electron-mobility transistors are reported. We observed that the EL intensity reveals peaks around the edge of the channel and the electron temperature there is higher than the electron temperature at the center of the channel. These EL features were found to be consistent with the change in the junction temperature, which we locally estimated by comparing the PL data with measurements in raised ambient temperatures.
