edge-emitting LED
An LED that has a physical structure superficially resembling that of an injection laser diode, operated below the lasing threshold and emitting incoherent light. Note: Edge-emitting LEDs have a relatively small beam divergence, and thus are capable of launching more optical power into a given fiber than are the conventional surface-emitting LEDs.
