Solid State Lighting & Energy
The Solid State Lighting & Energy Electronics Center (SSLEEC) at UC Santa Barbara is a new collaborative center, which partners key industry leaders and UCSB researchers to advance solid-state lighting and energy efficient power switching using wide-bandgap semiconductors.
The research thrusts for the center include:
Ultra-efficient solid state lighting (>280ml/Watt)
Power switching (98% efficient > 2kV)
Laser lighting (>200ml/Watt)
Low cost bulk GaN
