Nobel laureate in Physics Professor Shuji Nakamura is giving a lecture at the University of Paderborn

On November 30th 2016, Professor Shuji Nakamura, laureate of the Nobel prize for Physics in 2014, is giving a special lecture at the University of Paderborn.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the CeOPP, the TRR 142 and the GRK 1464 managed to invite Professor Nakamura as special guest for this event. In his lecture with the title: “The invention of high efficient blue LEDs and future Solid State lighting”, Professor Nakamura will highlight his invention and the role of high efficient blue LEDs which is regarded as a breakthrough in lighting technology. Abstract of Prof. Nakamura´s talk

In 2014 Professor Shuji Nakamura received the Nobel Prize together with Prof. Isamu Akasaki and Prof. Hiroshi Amano for the invention of high efficient blue LEDs. The three researchers engineered high-quality Gallium Nitride as a material for blue light emitting diodes, which are also the basis for white LEDs.

Professor Nakamura studied Electrical Engineering in Japan. Since 1999 he is Professor at the University of California Santa Barbara. In 2008, Prof. Nakamura, along with his collegues Prof. Dr. Steven DenBaars and Prof. Dr. James Speck, founded the company Soraa, which produces and markets high-end LEDs.

Location:             University of Paderborn, Auditorium Maximum
Date/Time:        November 30th, 2016, 6 p.m.
