25th Anniversary Of The White LED – Invented by Nichia, Japan

25th Anniversary Of The White LED – Invented by Nichia, Japan Established in 1956 to produce chemicals for the pharmaceutical industry, Nichia quickly evolved to become one of the world’s largest phosphor manufacturers, a leadership position Nichia held into the 2000’s. After significant investment into a technology believed impossible, in 1993 Nichia commercialized the very first high luminous blue LEDs. With these high luminous blue LEDs and its then 30+ years of phosphor expertise and history, Nichia created a revolutionary technology. In September of 1996, Nichia combined Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) phosphor with its innovative blue LEDs to officially produce the first ever white LEDs. The world suddenly had a new trajectory for applications utilizing white light, one with many significant benefits. Read more »

NICHIA Introduces High-Power 1800K LED as Industry’s Only True Alternative to High Pressure Sodium Lamps

NICHIA Introduces High-Power 1800K LED as Industry’s Only True Alternative to High Pressure Sodium Lamps NICHIA, the world’s largest LED manufacturer and inventor of the high-brightness blue and white LEDs, announces its 219F series of high-power LEDs, uniquely positioned as a true alternative to High Pressure Sodium lamps (hereinafter abbreviated as HPS). Global efforts to phase-out the use of HPS continue to be met with a resistance to using white LED replacements. Due to this lack of a viable and sustainable alternative, HPS have remained exempt from the list of banned products under the Minamata Convention on Mercury, meaning HPS remains ubiquitous. With the introduction of the 219F, NICHIA becomes the first LED manufacturer to provide that alternative. NVSW219F eradicates mercury but increases efficiency and lifetime, with a low (1800K) correlated color temperature output that works with HPS to retain the element of ‘nostalgic landscape’ lighting, making it a true alternative.
