A light-emitting semiconductor device includes a stack of layers including an active region. The active region includes a semiconductor selected from the group consisting of III-Phosphides, III-Arsenides, and alloys thereof. A superstrate substantially transparent to light emitted by the active region is disposed on a first side of the stack. First and second electrical contacts electrically coupled to apply a voltage across the active region are disposed on a second side of the stack opposite to the first side. In some embodiments, a larger fraction of light emitted by the active region exits the stack through the first side than through the second side. Consequently, the light-emitting semiconductor device may be advantageously mounted as a flip chip to a submount, for example.
