Course Instructor
SC052: Light-Emitting Diodes
This course presents the history, operating principles, fabrication processes, and applications of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with particular emphasis on solid-state lighting applications. The course provides an overview of LED fundamentals, design, and fabrication techniques. Furthermore, the fundamentals of solid-state lighting are discussed, including human factors, efficacy, efficiency, and color rendering properties of novel light sources. Although the course participants do not need to be specialists in optoelectronic device physics, familiarity with semiconductors is expected.
