In this study, we demonstrate a GaN-based transverse junction blue LED array. This device was realized by the regrowth of n-type GaN layers on the sidewall of p-type GaN and undoped multiple quantum wells (MQWs). Due to the transverse flow of injection carriers, problems related to nonuniform current distribution, nonuniform carrier distribution among different MQWs, and bias-dependent shape of the electroluminescence spectra such as that occurring in traditional GaN-based blue LEDs with vertical p-n junctions and large active area (<1 mm2) are all greatly minimized in our structure.
