The authors report on quantitative investigations of the voltage drop across the heterostructure layer sequence of an operating AlGaInP light-emitting diode via Kelvin probe force microscopy for different external biases between -2.0 and +1.86 V. In the low voltage regime, most of the voltage drops in the active layer. For bias voltages above +1.5 V, however, they found an additional voltage drop on the p side of the device, which reduces the power efficiency of the light-emitting diode.
