Nano- and microrods with the active region wrapped around the 3D-core as a shell layer have the potential to be a disruptive technology for solid state lighting. This article reviews the recent work on III-nitride based core-shell nano- and microrods grown by metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy. The most common growth approaches are discussed along with their implications on device processing. The basic device requirements are outlined as well as first examples of LED devices using these 3D structures as active elements are presented.
