We propose and demonstrate a green semipolar (20-21) micro-light emitting diode (LED) acting as a high speed visible light communication (VLC) photodiode (PD). The micro- LED PD has the optical-to-electrical (OE) response of 228 MHz. A record data rate of 540 Mbit/s in on-off-keying (OOK) format with free-space transmission distance of 1.1 m was achieved, fulfilling the pre-forward error correction (FEC) limit. Many transmitters (Txs) and receivers (Rxs) is required to support the high density pico/femto-cells in future wireless networks, as well as the Internet-of-Things (IOT) networks. The proposed work could allow the realization of a low-cost, small-footprint and a high level of integration of VLC Txs and Rxs on the same platform.
