Advanced Optical Characterisation of Nanostructures in White Light Emitting Diodes

Project Member(s): Phillips, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN-DAAD - Germany Joint Research Co-operation Scheme)

Start year: 2014

Summary: The project will provide a fundamental scientific understanding the physics nanostructured InGaN/GaN materials and structures and will result in the discovery of new physics. This knowledge will enable the development of phosphor-free white light LEDs with enhanced light emission with lower operating power. These new nanostructured InGaN materials can also be implemented in other advanced technologies, such as high efficiency solar collectors, sensor technologies and cutting-edge nano-photonic devices. Underpinning the research program will be a structured program of cross-training in advanced optical characterisation techniques involving senior researchers, early career researchers and post graduate students.
