We demonstrate controllable and tunable full color light generation through the monolithic integration of blue, green/yellow, and orange/red InGaN nanowire light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Such multi-color nanowire LED arrays are fabricated directly on Si substrate using a three-step selective area molecular beam epitaxy growth process. The lateral-arranged multi-color subpixels enable controlled light mixing at the chip-level and yield color-tunable light emission with CCT values in the range from 1900 K to 6800 K, while maintaining excellent color rendering capability. This work provides a viable approach for achieving micron and nanoscale tunable full-color LED arrays without the compromise between the device efficiency and light quality associated with conventional phosphor-based LEDs.
