DOE SSL Postings: DOE's 14th annual Solid-State Lighting R&D Workshop

The father of LED lighting, Shuji Nakamura, who won the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics for inventing the energy-efficient blue LED, set the tone by focusing on SSL's cutting edge, wowing the crowd with his discussion of such innovations as tunnel-junction blue/green LEDs, violet LEDs, microLEDs, patterned sapphire substrates, high-power semipolar laser diodes (LDs), and Li-fi using LEDs and LDs.
