    Project Details


    Super bright (SB) light-emitting diodes (LEDs), representing the most promising future light source to substitute the low energy-efficiency incandescent lamp, is to be achieved in this project by exploring recent advances in nanophotonics, i.e. photonic quasi-crystals (PQC) and surface plasmons (SP). SB LEDs with enhanced efficiency and controlled emission profile will be designed, fabricated and characterized in this project, which will benefit from the collaboration of Chinese and Danish partners with their complementary equipment of expertise. This project gathers top scientists on LED Metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD), simulation and modelling of nanostructures for LED efficiency nhancement, nanofabrication and LED characterization. These experts are the most active players in the field of LED from China and Denmark, i. e. Semiconductor Lighting Research and Development Center, Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU) and Department of Photonics Engineeing, Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
    In addition, a low-cost nanofabrication method to fabricate this SBLED will be eveloped with the assistance of NIL Technology APS. The synergy of the overall expertises and resources would help creating a critical mass in this area, thereby placing DTU on the world map in the field of research.
