Edge Emitting Devices
It is difficult to construct 2-dimensional arrays of edge-emitting devices.
Packaging must be used to improve directionality of light emission.
Surface Emitting Devices
Fabrication requires etching of portions of layers to place electrical contacts.
Due to placement of the electrical contacts, it is difficult to guarantee uniform current in each layer of the device.
