Researchers Make Green LEDs Brighter and More Efficient

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign have developed a new method for making brighter and more efficient green light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Using an industry-standard semiconductor growth technique, they have created gallium nitride (GaN) cubic crystals grown on a silicon substrate that are capable of producing powerful green light for advanced solid-state lighting.

CLTC Research Addresses Integrated Building Control Systems

California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) of UC Davis is developing an integrated building control system for existing commercial buildings. To date, few research efforts have accounted for the interdependence of lighting, fenestration and HVAC systems and the consideration of HVAC status in an integrated approach to optimize whole building energy-efficiency via a single, unified control platform.

U.S. Researchers Use Integrated Methods to Create Efficient QD LED Lighting

Recently, quantum dots (QDs)—nano-sized semiconductor particles that produce bright, sharp, color light—have moved from the research lab into commercial products like high-end TVs, e-readers, laptops, and even some LED lighting. However, QDs are expensive to make so there’s a push to improve their performance and efficiency, while lowering their fabrication costs.A team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has recently produced some promising results toward that goal, developing a new method to extract more efficient and polarized light from quantum dots (QDs) over a large-scale area. Their method, which combines QD and photonic crystal technology, could lead to brighter and more efficient mobile phone, tablet, and computer displays, as well as enhanced LED lighting.
