       US researchers can zoom in, or can the LED achieve zero light decay?
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a new way to increase the brightness and efficiency of green LEDs. Using industry-standard semiconductor crystal growth technology, researchers fabricated gallium nitride (GaN) crystals on silicon substrates that produce high-power green light for solid-state lighting.
"This is a breakthrough process," said Can Bayram, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Illinois. "The researchers succeeded in producing new materials on a tunable CMOS silicon process, namely cubic GaN. ), this material is mainly used for green wavelength emitters."
Typically GaN forms one or two crystal structures, hexagonal or cubic. Hexagonal GaN is thermally stable and is a traditional semiconductor application. However, hexagonal GaN is more prone to polarization, and the internal electric field separates the negative electrons from the positrons, preventing them from being combined, thus causing a decrease in light output efficiency.
Bayram and Liu believe that their square GaN crystals could successfully achieve LEDs with zero droop. For green, blue or UV LEDs, the luminous efficiency of these LEDs will gradually decline with the input of current, which is called light decay.
The industry's first single crystal full color LED came out
Ostendo EpiLab., an Ostendo TechInc., Southern California, developed the world's first full-color LED. They used GaN materials to develop three special quantum structures that emit three different colors of light that can be emitted independently or in combination. Due to the power-saving and long-life characteristics of LEDs, full-LED displays made of full-color LEDs will likely replace the currently used liquid crystal technology (LCD) and even surpass organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
New progress in the application of UV LED free-form surface light distribution technology
Under the support of Chongqing Science and Technology Plan Project, the Integrated Optoelectronic Technology Research Center of Chongqing Institute of Green and Intelligent Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences has made important progress in the application research of UV LED free-form surface light distribution technology, and successfully used UV LED light source in the field of exposure machine. Has been applied in the PCB, LCD panel, touch screen and other industries. Related results have been granted national patent authorization (patent number: lens 201320875490.0 for UV LED collimation, high uniformity UV LED exposure head 201420651432.4).
The conventional parallel light exposure machine uses a high-pressure mercury lamp as a light source, and its life is only 1000 hours, which consumes high power and is polluted. The use of UVLED to replace the mercury lamp light source, the lifespan can reach 50 times of the mercury lamp, the power consumption can be reduced by 90%, the production cost of the enterprise is greatly reduced, and the environment is environmentally friendly.
At present, Chongqing Research Institute has broken through the key technologies of LED multi-free-form surface precise light distribution and inorganic optical component processing in the ultraviolet band. For the first time, a parallel light exposure head based on UV LED has been developed, and the parallel half angle can be controlled within ±2°. The illumination unevenness is less than 3%, and the illumination intensity is as high as 40 mW/cm2.
Saphlux develops new technology to overcome the unsolved problem of Nakamura Shuji
Saphlux, established in 2014, has repeatedly found a solution at the beginning of this year (involving the trade secrets and inconvenience to disclose it), breaking the original semi-polar gallium nitride material growth mode, not only in the standard The growth of semi-polar gallium nitride directly on a sapphire substrate can directly control the direction and shape of crystal growth.
The breakthrough of this underlying technology means that it is expected to break through the bottleneck of the quantum efficiency of the first generation materials and the green light gap, and make the next generation of high-power, high-efficiency LED and laser products, especially for medical and outdoor lighting. The field of high demand is of great significance.
Using new materials to make white LEDs
Recently, researchers at Tsinghua University in Taiwan published an article in "ACS Nano", which pointed out that researchers use materials other than rare earth elements to produce LED products that can emit white light. This LED is based on an alkali metal ruthenium, and a metal organic framework (MOF) is built. Graphene and other materials are combined on the upper and lower sides of the MOF to form an LED that can directly emit white light. The light emitted by the new material is very close to the natural light, and there is no strong blue light. Since there is no need to block other colors of light, the luminous efficiency is greatly improved.
