“At the end of the day, it is important for me to know that I have in some way contributed to improving the lives of others,” said Nakamura. “As a co-awardee of the Asia Game Changer Award, I’m sharing the award with Professors Akasaki and Amano, and it is rewarding and comforting to see just how far the invention of the blue LED has gone to drastically improve the quality of life for individuals in Asia and to aid Asia in reducing their electrical energy consumption, thereby indirectly reducing their contribution to climate change.”
