Arrays of long wavelength, self-organized InGaAs quantum dot micron sized light-emitting diodes (μ-LEDs) with parabolic sidewalls are introduced. The parabolic profiles of the μ-LEDs produced by resist reflow and controlled dry etching improve the extraction efficiency from the LEDs by redirection of the light into the escape cone by reflection from the sidewalls. A fourfold increase in the substrate emitted power density compared to a reference planar LED is measured. The reflected light is verified to be azimuthally polarized. The spectral width of the emission can be greater than 200nm.
