US Patent 8203136 - Nanorod LED

This patent from Sino-American Silicon Products Inc. claims to reduce the manufacture cost and increase the production speed of LED structures formed from semiconductor nanorods. Claim 1 reads:

1. An epitaxial substrate, comprising:

a crystalline substrate being formed of a first material and having a crystal surface; and

a plurality of non-aligned nanorods having non-fixed lattice constant and being formed of an oxide of a second material different from the first material, and randomly arranged on the crystal surface of the crystalline substrate.
