1. A solid state light emitting device, comprising:
a light emitting stack of a plurality of semiconductor layers;
a metallization on the light emitting stack including at least one metallization layer and comprising a guard layer of metal;
a dielectric layer on the guard layer of the metallization;
a plurality of stress-relief elements and/or anchor elements in an edge region of the metallization and/or dielectric layer, the edge region being the region of the solid state light emitting device adjacent to the edge of the solid state light emitting device, wherein the stress-relief elements are formed by a plurality of discrete regions of increased thickness or reduced thickness in the guard layer.
