Effects of Design, Manufacturing Processes, and Materials on High-power LED Performance

Dr. Sheng LiuProfessor of Mechanical EngineeringHuazhong University of Science and Technology

Since the first light-emitting diode (LED) was invented by Holonyak and Bevacqua in 1962, LEDs have made remarkable progress in the past few decades with the rapid development of epitaxy growth, chip design and manufacture, packaging structure, processes, and packaging materials. LEDs have superior characteristics such as high efficiency, small size, long life, low power consumption, and high reliability. The market for white LED is growing rapidly in various applications. It has been widely accepted that white LEDs will be the fourth illumination source to substitute the incandescent, fluorescent, and high-pressure sodium lamps. With the development of LED chip and packaging technologies, the efficiency of high power white LED will broaden the application markets of LEDs while changing the lighting concepts of our lives. In this talk, we will present some of our recent results on the effects of design, manufacturing processes, and materials on high-power LED performance in terms of manufacturing yield, failure modes, thermal and optical performance. Some other research efforts in WNLO/HUST will also be presented.
Dr. Sheng Liu is a ChangJiang Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
