SmartKem collaborating with UCSB’s Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center

Dec 17, 2021

The Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center (SSLEEC) at University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), a collaborative center that brings researchers and industry partners together to improve and advance solid-state lighting and energy-efficient power switching, has welcomed its newest member: the UK-based electronics company SmartKem. “We believe that SmartKem’s revolutionary high-performance flexible organic semiconductor technology is the perfect material for micro-LED displays, sensors and electronics,” says Shuji Nakamura, a UCSB professor of materials and of electrical and computer engineering, and winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics for the invention of the bright-blue LED. “Matching SmartKem’s organic semiconductor materials with gallium nitride micro-LEDs has the potential to afford many benefits in next-generation displays and sensors,” adds SSLEEC’s executive director Steve DenBaars. “UCSB has a longstanding tradition of academic excellence and commitment to innovative research and technology development; values that underpin SmartKem’s commitment to delivering the next generation of electronics,” comments SmartKem’s CEO Ian Jenks. SmartKem says that its semiconductor platform can be used in applications including mini-LED displays, AMOLED displays, fingerprint sensors and integrated logic circuits. Membership of SSLEEC should enable the the firm to gain access to the latest in research and intellectual property developed by the center in fields such as micro-LEDs and displays.
