    The optical properties of InGaN/GaN green light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with an undoped graded short-period superlattice (GSL) and a Si-doped GSL (SiGSL) were investigated using photoluminescence (PL) and time-resolved PL spectroscopies. For comparison, an InGaN/GaN conventional LED (CLED) without the GSL structure was also grown. The SiGSL sample showed the strongest PL intensity and the largest PL peak energy because of band-filling effect and weakened quantum- confined stark effect (QCSE). PL decay time of SiGSL sample at 10 K was shorter than those of the CLED and GSL samples. This finding was attributed to the oscillator strength enhancement by the reduced QCSE due to the Coulomb screening by Si donors. In addition, the SiGSL sample exhibited the longest decay time at 300 K, which was ascribed to the reduced defect and dislocation density. These results indicate that insertion of the Si-doped GSL structure is an effective strategy for improving the optical properties in InGaN/GaN green LEDs.
