High-performance light-emitting diode together with apparatus and method embodiments thereto are disclosed. The light emitting diode devices emit at a wavelength of 390 nm to 470 nm or at a wavelength of 405 nm to 430 nm. Light emitting diode devices are characterized by having a geometric relationship (e.g., aspect ratio) between a lateral dimension of the device and a vertical dimension of the device such that the geometric aspect ratio forms a volumetric light emitting diode that delivers a substantially flat current density across the device (e.g., as measured across a lateral dimension of the active region). The light emitting diode devices are characterized by having a current density in the active region of greater than about 175 Amps/cm^(2).
