The active layer of UV light-emitting devices basically comprises In-free materials, such as AlGaN, due to the requirement of a wide bandgap, so carriers can easily diffuse into non-radiative recombination centers at or around threading dislocations. On the other hand, an AlGaInN quaternary active layer is expected to have both UV bandedge emission and high quantum efficiency with In-rich clusters, and it is applied to active layers in UV-LEDs [42,43]. However, the crystalline quality of the quaternary alloy is thought to be inferior, so that the efficiency of UV LEDs having AlGaInN active layer is still very low.
