Reliable and reproducible p-type doping is the main challenge for fabricating highly efficient ZnO-based light-emitting diodes. During the last few years, the lack of reliable p-type conductivity in ZnO has initiated research concerning the combination of ZnO and other semiconductors, which can then be doped p-type. One of these concepts is the combination of ZnO with GaN heterostructures aiming at the fabrication of hybrid LEDs. We discuss the problems as well as potential benefits from a combination of ZnO and GaN hybrid heterostructures in a single device. We also present our recent results on ZnO-GaN hybrid LEDs using an inverted LED concept. The hybrid LEDs have an external quantum efficiency of more than 35%.
