Abstract

Avalanche-mode visual light emission in Si diodes is shown to be useful for rapid assessment of the origin of non-ideal currents. In the test structure design, it was important to consider the breakdown-voltage distribution, diode size and contact positioning to obtain light-spot appearances at positions related to bulk defect distributions.
