The International Workshop on Solid-State Lighting of LED and Laser Diode, co-organised by the University of Macau (UM) and the Physical Society of Macao, was held at MGM MACAU today (15 December). Prof Shuji Nakamura from the University of California, Santa Barbara, the 2014 Nobel laureate in physics, as well as other renowned experts, scholars, and industry elite attended the workshop and had in-depth discussions on the latest developments, problems, and challenges in solid-state lighting (SSL).

The workshop was jointly initiated by UM, the Physical Society of Macao, the University of California, Santa Barbara, Guangdong Illuminating Engineering Society, and Tsing Hua University. It aimed to provide a platform for leading scientists in the field and industry leaders from the United States, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and mainland China to exchange ideas on the emerging trends and lighting technologies and to seek new opportunities and growth points in the optoelectronics industry. Prof. Nakamura and Prof. Tang (director of UM’s Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering and president of the Physical Society of Macao) served as the co-chairs of the workshop. Prof Da-Hsuan Feng, director of global affairs and special advisor to the rector at UM, was the consultant of the workshop. The workshop received great support from MGM MACAU.
