Bridgelux Inches Closer to LEDs: Bridgelux has boosted the performance of its experimental light emitting diod...

Bridgelux has boosted the performance of its experimental light-emitting diodes (LEDs) grown on silicon wafers and said it will start delivering them to the market within two years. If Bridgelux can keep on track, its silicon LEDs could dramatically cut the cost of solid state lighting: LED chips account for 60 percent or more of the cost of a bulb. It’s not a done deal -- manufacturers have tried to grow LEDs on silicon for years without much success -- but if it works, Bridgelux could establish a strong foothold in the market. Silicon LEDs emitting a cool white light showed efficiencies of up to 160 lumens per watt, while warm white LEDs made on the same process emitted up to 125 lumens per watt. In March , the company trotted out a prototype that emitted 135 lumens per watt. Just as important, the LEDs were grown on an eight-inch silicon wafer, a smaller wafer for the c...
