The authors report the fabrication of heterojunction light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on two-dimensional (2D) hexagonal ordered n-type ZnO nanomesh and p-type GaN. The 2D ZnO nanomesh array was prepared by employing polystyrene spheres as a template. When a forward bias was applied to the LED, a strong ultraviolet (UV) electroluminescence peaked at 385 nm can be observed. The peak deconvolution revealed three emission peaks at 370, 388, and 420 nm. The origin of these emission peaks will be discussed. In addition, the LED was capable of exciting a red phosphor to convert UV light into red light.
