  • Publication number: 20210091270
    Abstract: A light-emitting device includes a substrate that is at least partially transparent to optical radiation and has a first index of refraction. A diode region is disposed on a first surface of the substrate and is configured to emit light responsive to a voltage applied thereto. An encapsulation layer may be disposed on a second surface of the substrate and has a second index of refraction. An antireflective layer stack is formed within the substrate directly below the second surface of the substrate. The antireflective layer has an amorphous non-porous first layer, a porous second layer, an optional amorphous non porous third layer, and a fourth layer with modified crystallinity. The encapsulation layer may also be omitted and the substrate's second surface may separate the substrate, which has an antireflective layer stack within the substrate, directly below the second substrate surface, from air.
