Indium gallium nitride (InGaN) based converter structures are promising candidates for optical devices emitting in the green spectral range. They are realized by epitaxial overgrowth of three-dimensional semipolar gallium nitride (GaN) by InGaN multiple quantum wells. Besides structural deficiencies, differently inclined facets incorporate different amounts of indium, resulting in a broadening of the integral light output spectrum. To overcome these deficiencies, such converter structures were investigated in detail by spatially and spectrally resolved low-temperature cathodoluminescence (SEM-CL), which offers the possibility to distinguish the origin of the different spectral contributions locally. In the CL maps, dark areas and subfacets with blue shifted emission patterns were found. These emission features correlate with undesirable subfacets of the GaN templates. By suppressing these subfacets, it is possible to achieve a more homogenous luminescence distribution, resulting in a better performance of the final device.
