Nobel Prize Winner Endorses Nanowire LED Technology
Hiroshi Amano, who recently was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, alongside Shuji Nakamura and Isamu Akasaki for their roles in inventing the blue light emitting diode (LED), has endorsed Aledia’s nanowire LED technology.
Amano is a member of Aledia’s Scientific Advisory Board.
Aledia is a developer of next-generation LEDs based on its WireLED nanowire technology, which allows manufacturing of 3D LEDs for solid-state lighting applications on 8-inch or larger wafers in existing CMOS foundries, and their integration in electronics. The 3D microwire GaN-on-silicon technology was originally developed by CEA-Leti. It allows significant cost reductions compared to conventional planar (2D) LEDs, which should accelerate the penetration of LED applications in new markets, such as general lighting.
Aledia is a spinout of the CEA in Grenoble, France, a European microelectronics research laboratory. Founded in 2011, the company has received funding from European and US venture capital firms.
