Press Releases – September 7th, 2015

Pr. Shuji Nakamura, Nobel Prize in Physics, will inaugurate the conferences of ForumLED Europe 2015

We have the pleasure to inform you that Pr. Shuji Nakamura, 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics, will be on ForumLED Europe on 7 and 8 December, 2015 in Lyon. It will be our honor to open two days conference ForumLED Europe, enabling 7th edition being a must event for European innovation and international expertise in lighting and LED technology.

Pr. Nakamura Biography

Since 2000, he has been a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, he is the Research Director of the Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center and The Cree Chair in Solid State Lighting & Displays.

The Professor Nakamura’s work led in the 1990s and 2000s with the invention of the blue LED, a breakthrough that enabled the realization of LED lighting we use today. Professor Nakamura is also the inventor of UV laser diodes without which the Blue-RAY DVD does not exist.

Professor Nakamura had received numerous awards for his work. He is the 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.

Professor Nakamura’s opening speech on ForumLED Europe 2015

First, Professor Nakamura will discuss the history and background story of the key scientific issues solved in order to realize high efficiency solid state lighting.

Next, Professor Nakamura will talk about the future laser lighting at the University of California at Santa Barbara. In particular, solving the current “droop” has been identified as key roadblocks to cost reduction and further improvements in solid state lighting.

After his opening speech, Professor Nakamura will participate for the rest of the day in meetings with companies and research labs, present on ForumLED Europe 2015.
