FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Soraa, the world leader in GaN on GaN™ LED technology, will hold a press conference and facility tour on Wednesday, October 8 at 1:30 PM PDT with Dr. Shuji Nakamura, who today was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics and is one of the company’s founders.
In 2007, Dr. Shuji Nakamura, along with pioneering professors Dr. Steven DenBaars and Dr. James Speck, came together and made a bet on an LED technology platform completely different than current industry practice, a technology most industry experts at the time considered to be impossible to execute.
Soraa bet that GaN on GaN™ LEDs would produce more light per area of LED and be more cost-effective than technology based on other foreign substrates like sapphire or silicon carbide. This strategy ran against every trend in the LED industry. That bet paid off: today, Soraa’s LEDs emit more light per LED material than any other LED; handle more electric current per area than any other LED; and its GaN on GaN™ crystals are up to a thousand times purer than any other LED crystal.
Soraa currently operates an LED fabrication plant in Fremont, California, one of only a few in the United States. Company representatives will be available to lead tours of the facility.

Pioneering lamps using LEDs built from pure gallium nitride substrates (GaN on GaN™), Soraa has made ordinary lighting extraordinarily brilliant and efficient. Soraa’s full spectrum GaN on GaN™ LED lamps have superior color rendering and beam characteristics compared to lamps using LEDs created from non-native substrates. Founded in 2008, Soraa is located in Fremont California, where it manufactures its GaN on GaN™ LEDs in the company’s state-of-the-art facility.
