Many of the current LED designs are 2-dimensional and horizontal, which can restrict light emittance because of its structure, but a 3D LED chip design which incorporates microrods can improve light emission, said Schmitt. Microrods can increase blue and green emission by 5-10% under a 350 mA current, and even boost white LEDs brightness by 10-20%. The technology is also capable of reducing LED droop by just 15% deviation from linear behaviour under of 350 mA to 1W. The forward wattage is also lower for 3D LED from 200 MA to 1W. Microrod materials are mostly InGaN or GaN LED.

wow 3d leds i cant wait for the future how long do you think it will be before led can perform like HID?

With the Cree XP-L hitting 200 lumens/watt, I believe they already outperform HID in terms of how good they are at turning
electrical energy into photons.
