Light from a GaN laser diode, diffracting through a GaN LED wafer etched with a photonic quasi-crystal with twelvefold rotational symmetry for enhancing light extraction. This image was taken at the University of Glasgow, during experimental work on a project aimed at developing LED backlights for thin LCD televisions.
