Inside an LED: beneath the surface of a Nobel Prize winning technology

Saturday 23 March: 11:00am - 12:00pm

Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, Goldsmiths 1, 27 Charles Babbage Road, CB3 0FS

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on Gallium Nitride are a revolutionary technology which is enabling energy efficient solid state lighting, with huge potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this talk, we will delve beneath the surface of LEDs, understanding the materials which are used to make them, how energy efficient light emission is achieved, and how the atomic scale structure influences device performance.
