Three Japanese share Nobel in physics for blue LED

Stockholm:This year's Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano from Japan, and Shuji Nakamura from the US for the invention of blue light emitting diodes (LEDs). The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences made the announcement Tuesday.

The prestigious prize will be awarded to the scientists for making fundamental transformation of lighting technology by inventing a new energy-efficient and environment-friendly light source - the blue light-emitting diode (LED).

Akasaki worked together with Amano at the University of Nagoya, while Nakamura was employed at Nichia Chemicals, a small company in Tokushima, a press release from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said.

The invention of the blue LED is just 20 years old, but it has already contributed to create white light in an entirely new manner to the benefit of us all.
