Samsung and a breakthrough in LED technology

Samsung has announced that their engineers succeeded in the creation of “crystalline Gallium Nitride on amorphous glass substrates”, allowing to build large products from regular glass panes, such as the one used for windows.

This transcendental improvement in growing LED screen is important for two reasons: lower cost of the final product and its possibilities.

Even though the regular size of Gallium Nitride LEDs doesn’t surpass the 5 centimeters, the people from the Institute of Technology of Sammy believe that the new fabrication process will increase LED’s size to as much as 400 times larger than current products.

“In ten years, window panes will double as lighting and display screens, giving personality to buildings,” said a Samsung researcher who participated in the project.
