Watch the Kyoto Prize Symposium
Dr. Isamu Akasaki, a semiconductor scientist, university professor at Nagoya University and professor at Meijo University in Japan, is the 25th Kyoto Prize laureate in “Advanced Technology.” Dr. Akasaki pursued his dream to develop the world’s first blue Light-Emitting Diode (LED)—once considered impossible by the scientific community. His pioneering contributions to the development of blue LEDs and blue lasers have led to better data storage, sharper video and movies, and environment-friendly lighting products based on energy-saving LED technology. Dr. Akasaki will discuss “Enchanted Journeys in Blue Light,” Thursday, April 22, 10:00-11:30 a.m. at San Diego State University.
