Japanese winner of Nobel Prize Shuiji Nakamura targe laser lighting and Li-fi for LED top applications

Nobel prize winner Shuiji Nakamura in TaiwanRecently, Japanese Shuiji Nakamura, who is the blue LED inventor and the winner of Nobel Prize in Physics in 2014  pointed out the trends and potentials of the LED industry.

Since the invention of blue LED by an approach with GaN, the technology has brought great changes to our everyday life. Besides energy efficient LED lighting applications, blue LEDs also had many applicatiions in backlight display, smart lighting, and the next-gen display technologies, Micro LED and Mini LED.

Nakamura has been dedicated to developing full spectrum lighting. He combined violet-emitting LEDs with a mix of three phosphors to create light source with a complete and continuous spectrum. 

Also, Nakamura works on laser-based lighting which he believes to be "light of the future." The emitting area of laser light is even smaller than LEDs, its high power feature also makes it suitable for automotive lighting. Facing the rising development of autonomous driving technology, laser-based LiDAR is found to be so important.

Finally, Nakamura talked about the potential of Li-Fi as well. Li-Fi offer high speed data transfer and provide better security and a wider range of applications.
