Editorial. This Cluster Issue of Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics highlights micro-pixellated gallium nitride light-emitting diodes or 'micro-LEDs', an emerging technology offering considerable attractions for a broad range of scientific and instrumentation applications. It showcases the results of a Research Councils UK (RCUK) Basic Technology Research programme (http://bt-onethousand.photonics.ac.uk), running from 2004-2008, which has drawn together a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research partnership to develop these devices and explore their potential.
