The 11th International Symposium on Semiconductor Light Emitting Devices (ISSLED 2017)
UCSB Graduate Student Researcher, David Hwang, received the best student presentation at the 11th International Symposium on Semiconductor Light Emitting Devices (ISSLED 2017). This event took place in the Banff Centre, Banff, Canada, from the 8th to 12th of Oct. 2017.
(Santa Barbara, Calif.) — Shuji Nakamura, a UC Santa Barbara professor of electrical and computer engineering and of materials — and a Nobel laureate — has been awarded the 2017 Mountbatten Medal by the Great Britain-based Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), one of the world’s largest engineering institutions.
The mathematician Svitlana Mayboroda and collaborators have figured out how to predict the behavior of electrons — a mathematical discovery that could have immediate practical effects.
It can take decades for mathematical discoveries to find a practical application — if they ever do at all. But the landscape function, introduced in 2012, has already been adopted by physicists and engineers. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, the physicists Claude Weisbuch and James Speck have a grant from the Department of Energy to use the landscape function to design a better LED in green — the hardest LED color to engineer efficiently.
National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) employees fill the facility’s café on July 5 to hear a distinguished from Shuji Nakamura, who was part of the team that won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2014 for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
The 2017 Graduate Division commencement ceremony was held Sunday, June 18 at 4:00 p.m., on the Faculty Club Green.
Prof. Shuji Nakamura, a Nobel Prize winner for the invention of blue LEDs, is a new Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Warsaw, Poland.
UC Santa Barbara engineering professor Larry Coldren has received the 2017 Nick Holonyak, Jr. Award from the Optical Society of America (OSA) in recognition of his “major contributions to photonic integrated circuits.”
Professor Shuji Nakamura is one of the four featured speakers.
With labor cost of hotel operations increasing, there is a pressing need for the development of intelligent hotel technology that is cost effective, highly efficient and can assure the high quality of hotel services. At the event, Professor Shuji Nakamura said, combination of AI, robots and human abilities will be a future trend.

2017 Central Coast Innovation Awards
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.
Li-Fi (light fidelity) based on LED or laser has much higher data transfer speeds than Wi-Fi, 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics recipient Shuji Nakamura said in a keynote speech in Taipei recently.
We are delighted to announce that Clayton Cozzan is a student poster winner for the 2017 Department of Energy Solid State Lighting Research and Development Workshop for his poster titled "Phosphor Geometries and Luminaires for Laser-driven White Lighting Applications." Clayton researches phosphors for solid-state white lighting in the Materials Department for Ram Seshadri, with support from the Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center and the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy.
