14 COSA HANNO FATTO PER MERITARSI IL NOBEL

15 Semiconduttori Scoperti e sintetizzati alla fine dell ottocento Usati durante la seconda guerra mondiale per radar 1947 scoperta del transistor 1960 scoperta del laser 1962 primo laser a semiconduttore 1970 primo microprocessore

17 1968 LED a luce rossa: prima produzione di massa Hewlett Packard calculators

18 1980 LED a luce rossa, verde, gialla

19 Mancano LED a luce blue

21 Quali erano i problemi Difetti di crescita dovuti a differenti passi reticolari Incapacità di crescere materiali drogati p

22 The Laureates challenged established truths; they worked hard and took considerable risks. They built their equipment themselves, learnt the technology, and carried out thousands of experiments. Most of the time they failed, but they did not despair; this was laboratory artistry at the highest level. 22

23 .But my bosses said it would be impossible to create a blue LED at Nichia, because many big companies and many research teams in big universities were trying to do it and were failing. So I went to went to my company s chairman, Nobuo Ogawa, who was my professor s friend, and the president Eji Ogawa, who was his son-in-law. I asked them if they would let me do research on blue LEDs and they said "Sure. No problem. Go ahead." I was very surprised. I asked them to give me a large budget so I could do it. "Please give me three million U.S. dollars," and they said "Sure. No problem." They had faith in me, despite the dismal sales (interview 2004 to Nakamura) 23

30 White LEDs 1st technique: Found in 1993, when the first blue LED was produced. By juxtaposing at a certain distance blue, red, and green LEDs, white light was obtained. Most simple method but not often used nowadays. 2nd technique: found in 1996 by Nichia Corp. and Fraunhofer Institut Start with LED with an active layer made of InGaN Cover this structure is covered with a yellow phosphor crystal coating (Ce 3+ :YAG). The LED chip emits blue light, which is converted to yellow light by the phosphor. Phosphorescence Luminescence

33 Japanese Company to Pay Ex Employee $8.1 Million for Invention (NYT Jan 12, 2005) Nakamura joined Nichia after graduating with a master's degree in electrical engineering from Tokushima University in In 1990, he filed the "404 patent, "which covered a technique to grow gallium nitride crystals, an essential component of blue LEDs. Using Nakamura's method, Nichia produced and sold the first high brightness blue LEDs in 1993 and quickly reaped huge profits. Nakamura left Nichia in December 1999 to join the University of California, Santa Barbara the following February. In December 2000, Nichia filed a lawsuit against Nakamura in the U.S. for infringing trade secrets. Nakamura then counter sued Nichia in a Tokyo court, seeking ownership of the 404 patent and compensation for his contributions to developing blue LEDs. Nakamura sued his former employer, seeking a share of the royalties from his invention after the company gave him an award of 20,000 yen, or less than $200, for his work. The amount of the settlement was significantly smaller than the 20 billion yen, nearly $200 million, that a lower court ordered Nichia to pay Mr. Nakamura last year. The lower court said that would be a fair amount, given that his invention was worth about 60 billion yen, or roughly $580 million, to Nichia.

34 PERCHÉ LA LORO SCOPERTA È IMPORTANTE

35 È un Nobel nello spirito di Alfred Nobel: Premiare le invenzioni e gli studi che hanno una tangibile ricaduta sull'umanità.

36 World Lighting Pollution Lighting corresponds to 20% of the worldwide energy consumption. Reducing energy consumption by using LEDs will significantly reduce the level of CO 2 emissions, therefore positively impacting climate change Reduced heat generation Use of less power Longer life span

50 The Advantage of LED Lighting Long life lifetimes can exceed 100,000 hours as compared to 1,000 hrs for tungsten bulbs. Robustness no moving parts, no glass, no filaments. Size typical package is only 5 mm in diameter. Energy efficiency 50 90% less energy used translates into smaller power supply. Non toxicity no mercury. Versatility available in a variety of colors; can be pulsed. Cool less heat radiation than HID or incandescent
