InAs columnar quantum dash (CQDash) structures on (100) InP have been realized by gas source molecular beam epitaxy for stacking numbers of up to 24. Laser devices show low threshold current densities between 0.73 and 3.5 kA/cm2, dependent on the CQDash orientation within the cavity. Photoluminescence and electroluminescence measurements confirm a strong relationship between the polarization degree of the emission and the orientation of the CQDashes. Eventually, the polarization of the CQDash emission could be changed from predominantly transverse electric to transverse magnetic by simply altering the dash alignment relative to the light propagation axis.
