1. A light-emitting device comprises of aa. an ultraviolet light-emitting structure havingi. a first layer with a first conductivity, andii. a second layer with a second conductivity;

  • iii. an light emitting quantum well region between above said first layer and second layerb. a first electrical contact in electrical connection with said first layer;

    c. a second electrical contact in electrical connection with said second layer; and

    d. an template serving as a platform for said ultraviolet light-emitting structure, said template havingi. a first buffer layer, said buffer layer being trenched, andii. a second buffer layer being coalesced over said first buffer layer, said second buffer layer being made of AlxInyGa1-x-yN, wherein 0<
