1. An optoelectronic device comprising:

  • a substrate including a first surface;

    a nanostructured area including nanostructures on the first surface of the substrate, the nanostructured area including a first segment in which the nanostructures are intact and a second segment in which the nanostructures are at least partially broken or removed, the second segment being laterally displaced from the first segment in a plane defined by the first surface of the substrate;

    an electrically insulating layer atop the first surface; and

    a conductor atop the electrically insulating layer over the second segment.
