Rich document 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.
Rich document Near-field Analysis of VCSEL Arrays
The VTC 4000 is Instrument System‘s VCSEL testing camera for comprehensive near-field analysis of complete VCSEL arrays.
