Green Light Emitting Diodes for the Ultimate Solid-State Lighting
Project Innovation + Advantages:
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) will pursue novel cubic gallium nitride-based green LEDs that, when combined with blue and red LEDs, will enable more efficient white light SSL without the use of down-converting phosphors. This project will close the “green gap” in the visible spectrum through an innovative green LED technology and create new opportunities in mainstream SSL (e.g., general lighting) and advanced SSL (e.g., connected smart lighting, visible light communication, horticulture, and medicine).
UIUC’s proposed technology could double the efficiency and halve the droop in green LEDs.
