Techies would say 'It's a surface mount diode' to contrast it from a 'Thru Hole' component. Surface mount components are soldered to pads on a circuit board. Thru Hole components have tinned legs which stick through a board, are soldered into the board, and then have the legs trimmed flush to the board.
