Professor Sir Colin Humphreys CBE will explore how the next generation of LED lighting will save energy and improve our health.

In this talk, which will appeal to scientists and non-scientists alike, Selwyn Fellow, Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, will discuss his ground breaking research into gallium nitride. Professor Humphreys will examine the fascinating properties of this light-emitting crystal, which led to the invention of the blue LED and a subsequent 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics for the team who originally developed the blue LED. Gallium nitride is probably the most important semiconductor material since silicon. It can be used to emit brilliant light in the form of light emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes, as well as being the key material for next generation high-frequency, high-power transistors capable of operating at high temperatures.

Cost: £10 per head for the lecture, including refreshments.

Guests are welcome.
