Nobel Laureate Shuji Nakamura lecture on LED technology
Lecture 4-5pm, Rauch Planetarium; Reception in Gheens Science Hall, 3:30-4pm
Shuji Nakamura, winner of UofL’s Leigh Ann Conn Prize for Renewable Energy for 2019, will give a public lecture on Monday, April 18th.
A world-leading pioneer in sustainable energy technology, Nakamura is recognized for his solid-state light-emitting diodes (LED) technology.
His LEDs have 10 times the efficiency of incandescent lighting, twice the efficiency of fluorescent bulbs and last 30 to 40 years, reducing the burden on the environment and helping create sustainable lighting worldwide.
