Light Reading Upcoming chance to meet a Nobel Prize winning Physicist

January 28, 2015

Overview and Q&A with Dr. Shuji Nakamura, 2014 Nobel Prize winner in Physics, covering the technology roadmap since the creation of the blue LED. A discussion about the history of LED technology from his early work which led to the Nobel Prize to today’s GaN which will lead to the next wave of Solid State Lighting.

2014 Nobel Prize winner Shuji Nakamura may have single-handedly changed the technological face of the world. His discovery of p-type doping in Gallium Nitride (GaN) and development of blue, green and white light emitting diodes (LEDs) and blue laser diodes (LDs) has enabled energy-efficient, solid-state lighting used in displays, medicine and the next generation of Blu-Ray optical storage. Now, Dr. Nakamura’s inventions are poised to replace Thomas Edison’s light bulb and save the world billions of dollars in energy costs.
