Please join Chancellor Jacquie Moloney as she presents 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics Shuji Nakamura with an Honorary Degree during the 2018 Tripathy Endowed Memorial Lecture on Wednesday, April 1 in Moloney Hall at University Crossing at 2:30 p.m.
Nakamura is the Research Director of the Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center and The Cree Professor in Solid State Lighting and Display, at the University of California Santa Barbara. He received the 2006 Millennium Technology Prize for his invention of revolutionary new energy-saving light sources and the 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics for the invention of efficient blue LEDs, which have enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.
Nakamura will deliver the Tripathy lecture on "Development of High Efficiency Blue In GaN LEDs and Laser Diodes" following the Honorary Degree Ceremony.
