A monolithic white light-emitting diode (LED,) comprising a combination of a fluorescent-SiC (f-SiC) substrate and a nitride-based near-UV LED stack, is proposed. On the basis of the recombination of donor and acceptor pairs, the f-SiC substrate works as a phosphor for visible light emission. By employing the Fast Sublimation Growth Process method, the high-quality f-SiC substrate doped with N and B exhibited a nonradiative carrier lifetime of 55 mu s and an internal quantum efficiency (IQE) of 40%. With increasing donor and acceptor doping concentrations, a high IQE was estimated even at a high excitation level.
