We report our current development progress of ultraviolet vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers, which included the development of an electrically conducting n-DBR consisting of 40-pairs of Si-doped quarter-wavelength layers of Al0.12Ga0.88N and GaN. A peak reflectivity of 91.6% at 368 nm was measured and a series resistance of 17.7Ω was extracted near the maximum measured current of 100 mA. Furthermore, a micro-cavity light emitting diode was demonstrated by utilizing the established n-DBR. A 2λ cavity was subsequently grown on the 40-pair Al0.12Ga0.88N/GaN n-DBR and a peak wavelength of 371.4 nm was observed with spectral linewidth of 5.8 nm.
