HPMI Researcher’s New Affordable LED Technology Receives an NSF Grant, Major Journal Article and Worldwide Notice

An HPMI researcher has developed a new highly efficient and low cost light emitting diode that could help spur more widespread adoption of the technology.

Dr. Zhibin Yu developed this new LED technology using a combination of organic and inorganic materials. The material, which dissolve and can be applied like paint, shines a blue, green or red light and can be used to make a light bulb. What makes it really special is that it’s far simpler to manufacture than existing products on the market.

The accomplishment has been a subject of a journal article in Advance Materials and an award from the National Science Foundation to continue the research.

The news on this development has been reported in  The Engineer, Engineering & Technology Magazine, LEDInside, New Electronics and Physics.org.
