We have demonstrated that fabrication of the ZnO nanowire/GaN hetero-junction light emitting diode (LED) by contacting the tip of the ZnO nanowires with the GaN film, and UV electroluminescence from the p-n junction. In this study, we fabricated the heterojunction by directly-growth of the ZnO nanowires on the GaN film using nanoparticleassisted pulsed laser deposition. Photoluminescence spectrum of the ZnO nanowires showed a weak near-band-edge ultraviolet (UV) emission and a visible broad emission, which was related to transition by ZnO defect state. We applied a selective laser irradiation to the p-n junction of the ZnO-based LED. The UV emission was strongly enhanced from the laser-irradiated p-n junction.
