At LUMINOUS! Centre of Excellence for Semiconductor Lighting and Displays, we have over 10 faculty members across disciplines (EEE, SPMS and MSE) to team up under the centre. As such, we focus on multidisciplinary research that offers potential solutions to addressing energy efficiency problem in lighting and combating global warming. A metal-organic chemical-vapor deposition (MOCVD) is set up, specially dedicated to the solid-state lighting and display. At LUMINOUS!, we develop and demonstrate high efficiency LED lighting using innovative epitaxial growth, fabrication process, and phosphors to outperform presently commercially available fluorescent and LEDs. The strategic research at LUMINOUS! enables major energy saving in lighting in Singapore/World and is fully in line with the Sustainable Earth Peak of Excellence, Nanyang Technological University.
