UV-B Efficient: New Project in material technology


Within the frameworkof"UVBEfficient" theFBHtogetherwith TU will develop efficientmanufacturing processesforUV-BLEDs (310 nm) with highquantum efficiency. The industrial partnerLayTecdevelopstherebymethods for improvedprocess controlintheMOVPE(Metal OrganicVapor Phase Epitaxy). This is the firstprojectfor devicedevelopmentin the contextof"Zwanzig20 -AdvancedUVfor Life".

The sub-project was launched on 01st November 2014 and will run for two years.

Nobel prize for physics 2014


This year's NobelPrize in Physicswas awarded tothe JapaneseIsamu Akasaki,HiroshiAmanoandShuji Nakamurafor the development ofblueLEDs. Their workis now usedas the basisof numerous research projectsin the field ofLEDs and laser diodes. Manyresultingproducts arepart of everyday life.

The research of "Advanced UV for Life" in the ultraviolet region would be impossible without the foundation created with respect to the P-type doping of gallium nitride.

Investment project approved by BMBF


The BMBF approved investment costs  for FBH and TU Berlin for expanding the technological basis for deployment of LED chips . The funds will be used to strengthen the technological base of the "Joint Labs GaN optoelectronics" of FBH and TU Berlin to UV emitters in order to accelerate the research and development of UV LEDs.
