The expansion of the GaAsN lattice following hydrogen incorporation is spatially patterned so as to generate an anisotropic stress in the sample growth plane. The resulting in-plane symmetry breaking determines an in-plane polarization dependence of the light emitted along the crystal growth direction in agreement with optical selection rules and strain field calculations.
