determining h 84 82 460 1 Introduction Light emitting diodes can be used not only for classical experiments in optics such as wave length determination but also for experiments relating to thequantum nature of light By this simple means an estimate of the value of Planck39s action quantum canbe obtained The demonstration of the linear relationship between the photon energy E and the light fre quency f is possible with greater accuracy than when using a vacuum photoelectric cell In addi tion to the photoelectric effect Xray bremsstrahlung and Compton scattering this experiment constitutes another example of the quantum nature of light 2 The ghysics of light emitting diodes The phenomenon of light generation by electric excitation of a solid body was rst observed by HJRound 1 in 1907 on silicon carbide SiC OVLossew 2 who further investigated this electroluminescent effect during the years 1927 to 1942 already assumed correctly that this is the inverse process with respect to the photoelectric effect discovered by Einstein A more de tailed explanation of the actual mechanism namely the radiating recombination of minority carri ers injected across a pnjunction was given much later by K Lehovec in 1951 3 Indepen dently thereof in 1935 G Destriau 4 found a similar luminous effect known by his name when he applied an electric eld to zinc sul de crystallites However the excitation mechanism of this effect differs from that of the injection luminescence found with SiC The electro luminescence of ZnS was further developed for technical exploitation in the 19505 Whereas no success was achieved here the Ill V compounds recognized to be semiconductors by HWelker 5 in 1951 brought the desired technical break through These semiconductors consisting of one atom each from the third and the fth column of the periodic system of the elements have some remarkable properties which distinguish them from the classical semi conductors silicon Si and germanium Ge First of all they have a wide spectrum with some band separations Eg much greater than those of Si and Ge so that their equivalent frequencies f E h extend into the visible spectral range Furthermore some of these semiconductors have much greater ef ciency fac tors for radiating recombination of electrons and holes and in some cases also much greater charge carrier mobilities than Ga and Si Their complicated technology which was mastered for technical massproduction not before the end of the 1960s is the chief reason why these Ill V semiconductors are used today only where the abovementioned advan tages over Si and Ge dominate For luminescent and laser diodes and for highest speed devices Luminescent light emitting diodes operate according to the principle of injection luminescence ie they are simple pndiodes in which with current polarity in the forward direction some of the charge carriers injected into the neutral n and pregion recombine radiatively thereby emitting a photon with energy 5 h rlt E Q ELWE Lehrsysteme GmbH Light emitting diodes for determining h 84 82 460 The kind of doping involved here coinsists of so called isoelectronic lattice defects In these po sitions of the crystal lattice the atom which replaces the normal one comes from the same co lumn of the periodic system of the elements ie in contrast to the case with normal donors and acceptors these lattice defects make no contribution to the charge carrier balance in the semi conductor But they differ so greatly from the substituted atom with regard to atomic radius and electronegativity that charge carriers can be bound The best known isoelectric lattice defect in GaAsP consists of a nitrogen atom in the place of an arsenic or phosphorus atom On account of its smaller atomic radius and its greater electronegativity such a nitrogen atom can bind an electron By Coulomb interaction this in turn binds a hole The bound electron and hole consti tute a socalled bound exciton A photon is emitted when this exciton decays ie when the be und electron and hole recom bine The advantage of these isoelectric lattice defects lies in the strong localization of the primarily bound electron As a result of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle this leads to a strong increase of the momentum uncer tainty of the electron and thus to the desired boost of the probability for radiating recombination 3

resistor 100 Ohms 4 Experiments 41 Determination of the wavelength with a diffraction at a grating virtual image of the light emitting diode The selected LEDs in the NEVA collection of light emitting diodes are well suited for subjective observation of diffraction at a grating No3942 with 25 lines per mm by virtue of their predo minant radiation in the forward direction and resulting high luminous intensity The beam must be restricted by a slit width lt 1 mm because the coloured plastic body of the chosen diodes radiates light from its entire surface Measure the distance delta of the virtual images from the symmetry axis After setting a known distance D eg 1 m between the ruler and the diffraction grating determine by quick change of view through the grating or directly on the ruler at what distance delta a maximum of highest possible order k appears to lie The wavelength is then calculated according to the equation lambda sin arctandeltaD dk where d is the diffraction grating constant 42 Diffraction at a grating in the visible range with real images of the light emitting diode The light emitting diodes with the colours green yellow and super red have suf cient luminous intensity for generating real diffraction images with diffraction gratings in a darkened room The beam must be restricted with a slit as described in Section 41Fig5 shows the basic setup for this

diffraction of infrared light In this experiment the light emitting diode is operated with pulsating direct current 8 V from the Universal Transformer 5200 The output voltage of the photo transistor is further ampli ed by an operational ampli er and then indicated by an AC voltmeter Adjust before the actual measu rement using a LED which emits visible light reduce the power supply voltage to 6 V The use of alternating light reduces the disturbing effect of ambient illumination so that only moderate darkening of the room is necessary in order to be able to carry out this experiment 44 The relationship between luminous intensity and current magnitude As a preliminary experiment before subsequent determination of h it is useful to observe quali tatively that on gradually increasing the voltage applied to the diode emission of lightcommen ces at the same point at which electric current starts to flow This observation indicates a causal relationship between these two physical

which a student comes across quite early It is one of the basic ingredients of quantum physics Its measurement naturally has to be 39part of any collegeuniversity physics laboratory program Traditional method of measurement has been a determination of current cutoff voltage of a vacuum photocell irradiated by a monochromatic source of light Vacuum photocells are not easily available now and a reasonably strong source of monochromatic light is also dif cult to maintain in an undergraduate laboratory An alternative method is however available It employs light emitting diodes LEDs which are widely used in various consumer products and are easily available Most LEDs are based on GaAs and GaP crystals with general composition GaAsLX P where the fraction x varies between 0 and 1 These materials are direct semiconductors The crystals are doped with small amounts of different impurities in adjacent regions to form a PN junction or diode These doped crystals emit light when a voltage is applied across the junction The colour of the emitted light depends on the exact value of x THEORY The basic idea in this measurement is that the photon energy which from Einstein s relation is l3y hv is equal to the energy gap Eg between the valence and the conduction bands of the diode The gap energy Eg is in turn equal to the height of the energy barrier eV0 that the electrons have to overcome to go from the n doped side of the diode junction to the pdoped side when no external voltage V is applied to the diode In the pdoped side they recombine with the holes releasing the energy Eg as photons with E Eg eVo Thus a measurement of V0 indirectly yields E and the Planck s constant if v is known or measured However there are practical and conceptual problems in the actual measurement Let us consider the LED diode lV equation 1 oc exp VoVt exp VVt l V Vm RI 1 where Vt nkTe k T and e are Boltzmann constant absolute temperature and electronic charge respectively Vm is the voltmeter reading in the external diode circuit and R is the contact resistance The constant T is the material constant which depends on the type of diode location of the recombination region etc The energy barrier eV0 is equal to the gap energy Eg when no external voltage V is applied as pointed out earlier The quantities which are constant in an LED are the impurity atom density the charge diffusion properties and the effective diode area The one in the rectifier equation is negligible if I 2 2 nA and the equation becomes 1 0c exp vvovtn oc exp eVVon kT 2 A direct method could be to apply a small voltage on the LED and increasing it till the LED is tumedon This tuming on could be detected by visually observing the light emission Plotting threshold voltage vs frequency of peak light output obtained from LED catasheets or from separate spectroscopic measurement provides the value of 116 The visual observation of the emission on set is quite vague Use of a photo multiplier is sometimes suggested for this purpose but working with it raises maintenance problems and is quite costly Altemately a measurement of threshold current lt 10 A through the LED may be attempted but it is dif cult and not entirely accurate due to inef ciencies of actual LED s Another procedure some times used is to draw a tangent to the IV characteristics of the diode and obtain its intercept This procedure may give reasonable good results if the tangents to the I V characteristics of all the diodes are drawn at the same current The method then really becomes equivalent to measuring voltage across the LED s at a single current all the LED s of the set are connected in series The intercepts of the tangents are except for an additive constant identical to diode voltages The additive constant may be eliminated by considering data from different LED s However the bulk of data collected from the original IV graph becomes irrelevant A basic drawback of these methods is the assumption that the barrier height V0 is constant equal to the gap energy Eg divided by the electronic charge Ege which is true only when the external potential V is small or atleast less Ege They further assume that the material constant 11 is unity which is not correct It may have any value from about one to about two varying from LED to LED The present method is free from these in rmities The height of the potential barrier is obtained by directly measuring the dependence of the diode current on the temperature keeping the applied voltage and thus the height of the barrier xed The external voltage is kept Xed at a value lower than the barrier The idea is that the disturbance to the potential barrier is as little as possible I In our experimental setup the variation of the current I with temperature is measured over about a range of about 30 C at a xed applied voltage V z 18 volts kept slightly below V0 The slope of lnI vs lT curve gives 6 V0 Vnk Fig1 The constant 11 may be determined separately from I V characteristic of the diode Fig2 at room temperature from the relation 1 ekTAVA lnI 3 The Planck s constant is then obtained by the relation heV0 Me 4 The contact resistance of the LED is usually around 1 ohm while overall internal resistance of the LED at applied voltage z 18 V is few hundred ohms The factor RI in expression V Vm RI may therefore be neglected The value of Planck s constant obtained from this method is within 5 of accepted value 662 x 103934 Joulessec EXPERIMENTAL SETUP E39l 39I39U 1n I I39mw u 0 y The setup consists of the following units 1 To draw IV
