AlGaInP-based metal-bonding light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with micro- and nanoscale textured surface were investigated. The device surface with microbowls and nanorods were formed by a chemical wet-etching and dry-etching technique for enhancing light-extraction purpose. The luminous intensity could be enhanced 65.8% under 20-mA current injection as compared with the plane surface LEDs. The maximum wall-plug efficiency was achieved 14.1% at 7.5-mA operation.
