2013 InGaN-based vertical light-emitting diodes with acid-modified graphene transparent conductor and highly reflective membrane current blocking layer. Proc R Soc A 469: 20120652. http://dx.Vertical light-emitting diodes (VLEDs) with a highly reflective membrane (HRM) as current blocking layer (CBL) and a graphene transparent conductive layer (TCL) have been fabricated and characterized. High reflectance of HRM and high transmittance of graphene ensure less loss of the optical power. The VLEDs

With further acid modification, forward electrical characteristics of VLEDs are improved.
