We present the description of an automated hardware-software complex intended for measuring the 3 dB frequency of modulation and evaluation of the quantum efficiency of separate spectral components of the full spectrum of electroluminescence of light-emitting diodes, including the range of low levels of excitation. The principle of operation of this complex is based on measuring the spectrum of radiation of a light-emitting diode with the help of an OceanOptics USB2000+ spectrometer in the signal-accumulation mode in the course of transmission of current pulses with given amplitude and repetition frequency through the light-emitting diode with subsequent selection of separate spectral components from the full spectrum of radiation. We present the results of testing the hardware-software complex performed by measuring, as an example, the frequency characteristics of separate spectral components of the full electroluminescence spectrum of commercial InGaN green light-emitting diodes. The analyzed hardware-software complex can be used for the diagnostics of the quality of light-emitting heterostructures with quantum wells.
