BluGlass joins Californian electronics R&D consortium

BluGlass has joined a collaborative research effort at University of California Santa Barbara dedicated to new semiconductor-based technologies.

According to an announcement from the company on Wednesday, membership of the university’s Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center (SSLEEC) is invite-only.

The industry-researcher group involves the university’s pre-eminent gallium nitride experts, said BlueGlass, including blue-LED inventor and Nobel Laureate Professor Shuji Nakamura, and industry luminary Professor Steven DenBaars.  

BluGlass said the invite recognises the company’s innovation in remote plasma chemical vapour deposition (RPCVD) epitaxy growth, “novel laser architectures, and longer-wavelength GaN devices.”

BluGlass President Jim Haden said that as well as access to such experts, also enhanced their credibility with potential customers and partners, “reinforcing our expertise in GaN laser diodes.”

DenBaars added, “I believe that RPCVD technology has huge advantages for the next generation of GaN advanced semiconductor devices.”

According to its website, SSLEEC’s focus is on new semiconductor-based technologies “for disinfection, advanced mobile displays, energy efficient lighting, and power electronics.”
