LED Innovators – Looking Ahead

June 15, 2017 8:33 am

There is a revolution in the lighting industry, and the catalyst is light-emitting diode technology (LED). Over the last decade, advancement in LEDs performance has been nothing less than phenomenal. The rapidly emerging LED technology already seems to outperform the traditional lighting technology, but innovators are still constantly looking forth to develop far better and cost-efficient technologies. One reason that high-performance LEDs are relatively expensive now is that they are typically made by layering various compounds onto a sapphire substrate. Shuji Nakamura developed a method of growing thin GaN layers on sapphire substrates in the early 1990s, and till now...
