GaN-based thin-film vertical-injection light-emitting diodes (VLEDs) with a 12-fold photonic quasi-crystal (PQC) by nano-imprint lithography (NIL) are fabricated and presented. At a driving current of 20 mA and with a chip size of 350 νm × 350 νm, the light output power of our thin-film LED with a 12-fold PQC structure reaches 41 mW. This result is an enhancement of 78% when compared with the output power of a VLED without a PQC structure. In addition, the corresponding light radiation pattern shows a narrower beam shape due to the strong guided light extraction effect by the formed PQC structure in the vertical direction.
