Professor Hiroshi Amano Nagoya University Japan and Professor Shuji Nakamura. University of California Santa Barbara USA, Their seminal work in the mid 1980s sparked an intensification of research and devel. opment in the field triggering a surge in patent filings as well as the rapid evolution of. the technology the emergence of a global multi billion dollar industry and numerous. far reaching social and environmental benefits,BREAKTHROUGHS SPAWN FIERCE BUSINESS RIVALRY.
In the early years the two companies responsible for initially commercializing the. technology Toyoda Gosei with whom Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano worked in. partnership and Nichia Corporation Shuri Nakamura s employer at the time domi. nated the lucrative market for blue LEDs The two companies locked horns in a fierce. business rivalry as each fought for pole position Despite multiple rounds of litigation. over patent rights which ultimately resulted in a comprehensive cross licensing. agreement their race for market dominance fuelled the technology s rapid advance. as each sought to outdo the other by producing brighter higher quality blue LEDs. WIPO MAGAZINE p 5,The inventions of,this year s Physics. Nobel Prize winners,have revolutionized,lighting technology. LEDs are extremely,flexible sources,of light capable of. producing many,different colors at,varying intensities. as required Breakthroughs in blue LED technology and its commercialization coincided with the. growing popularity and explosive demand for mobile phones and liquid crystal displays. Huge sales and even bigger profits transformed the fortunes of both companies as. well as those of Nagoya University Thanks to Japan s adoption of a law akin to the. US Bayh Dole Act whereby universities gained ownership of patents deriving from. government funded research Nagoya University was able to generate significant. licensing revenue from its blue LED related patents New market entrants including. manufacturers of consumer electronics e g Philips and Samsung and innovative. lighting solutions e g Cree and Osram seeking to tap into the technology s huge. commercial potential added further impetus bringing about multiple advances in. performance and an expanding range of applications which go far beyond those of. conventional light sources,LED TECHNOLOGY IN A NUTSHELL.
A LED is a solid state lighting solution Unlike traditional incandescent bulbs where. light is produced by heating a filament a LED consists of several layers of man made. semiconductor material which through a process of electroluminescence converts. electricity into light particles photons The wave length of the light generated by a. LED its color depends on the semiconductor material used blue light which ap. pears at the short wave end of the spectrum and which is required to create white. light can only be produced using certain materials. A white LED can be made either by mixing several colored LEDs or by using blue. LED with a type of phosphor to create light that is white in appearance A white. LED bulb currently converts around 50 percent of the energy it uses into light. compared to just 5 percent in an incandescent bulb This makes it an increasingly. favored energy efficient and environmentally friendly source of high quality light. A LITTLE LED HISTORY, Red and greens LEDs invented in the 1950s and 1960s were created using galli. um arsenide phosphide a material which proved unsuitable for creating blue LEDs. Recognizing the huge technological and commercial potential of blue LEDs which. would complete the palate of colors red green and blue required to make white. light leading industrial labs invested significant time and resources into developing. them but to no avail Harnessing the properties of the material gallium nitride GaN. which is the basis for growing and mass producing the crystals needed to efficiently. generate high quality blue LEDs proved difficult It took some 30 years to crack the. process Researchers faced three key challenges how to create high quality crystals. using GaN how to change their conductivity and how to boost their light emitting. properties, The lack of progress in working with the material caused many to abandon GaN. research in favor of other seemingly more promising materials But Isamu Akasaki. Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura remained convinced that GaN would yield the. results they sought Their dogged determination eventually paid off enabling them to. succeed where others had failed,p 6 2014 6,LEDs use less power.

Through the patent system inventors and companies are able. to retain exclusive rights to their inventions for a certain period. of time which allows them to present these inventions to the. world via academic conferences and scientific papers Without. the patent system I believe there would be no room for friendly. p 8 2014 6,Consumers understand IP is,THE KEY TO,INNOVATION By Don Rosenberg. Legal Counsel,Qualcomm Corp USA, The state of innovation in our global economy is strong For now. Around the world everyone loves and praises innovation Corporations and govern. ments marketers and educators promote it as the key to survival and prosperity. For consumers it is the catalyst for individual product purchases that in total add. up to swings in the gross domestic product of one economy or another It is the key. ingredient driving the following questions is this product or service new and improved. enough to make my life better or easier Is it superior to rival products or services. Is it worth more of my money, Cars home appliances information and entertainment electronics business equip.
ment clothing name almost any industrial sector and you will find rivals trying to. out innovate each other and repeatedly offering accolades to the power of innovation. But some kinds of innovation affect human lives more than others. A dynamic the consumer rarely thinks about but that governments must consider is. that the most exceptional kind of innovation the result of inspiration and hard work. and significant investments of time money or both can earn what is sometimes. considered a more venerated name invention,WHAT IT TAKES TO INCENTIVIZE INVENTION. Yet far too many policymakers have forgotten what it takes to incentivize the hard work. investment and creativity that bring new inventions to life Even as we celebrate the. merits of innovation and laud the growing significance of a knowledge based economy. it has become too easy to take for granted the legal and economic frameworks that. made the technological wonders of modern life possible. Take the mobile phone which was found to be the most useful invention of all. time by more than 70 percent of respondents to a recent global poll published in. TIME magazine Today s smartphone in fact is not just one invention but the product. of hundreds if not thousands of them Every week it seems new smartphones appear. that have their own unique features that we as consumers value And the marketplace. is the metric we use to measure which feature is most preferred or which manufacturer. does a nicer job designing it Sometimes a new function wins consumers hearts and. sometimes it s an original form the look the feel the buttons and sometimes it s. a combination of the two We base our decisions on these distinctions. But what about the science and engineering that make smartphones possible in. the first place that allow hundreds of millions of people at any given moment to. converse with friends located anywhere in the world or to call up key business.

A car is self driving if it can operate without the active control and continuous mon. itoring of a human being According to the US Department of Transportation this. means that the car s operation does not require driver input to control the steering. acceleration or braking However automation is really a question of degree The. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US has identified five levels of. automation see box,ALREADY HERE, Fully automated vehicles are now commonplace in certain controlled environments.

Benz s adaptive cruise control with steering assistance Volvo s. traffic jam assistance allowing cars to automatically brake and. follow cars in slow moving queues and Audi s piloted park. ing Many other carmakers including General Motors Ford. Volkswagen Nissan Toyota and BMW are also testing ad. vanced driver assistance systems ADAS,HOW THEY WORK. Exane BNP Paribas an investment company predicts that. the tech and telecommunication sectors will see more benefit. from the expected growth in the connected car market than. the traditional automobile industry The reason for this is sim. ple something is driving driverless cars and that something. is software processing huge volumes of data,Photo Nissan.
Driverless cars operate by amassing information collected from. cameras sensors geo location devices including radar digital. maps navigation programming and communication from other. connected vehicles and infrastructure Operating systems and. software then process this information and coordinate the me. chanical functions of the car These processes mimic the hugely. complex task human drivers undertake when they monitor the. road the car and themselves in order to drive Recent examples. include Google s patent on reading traffic lights or Tesla s latest. saloon which adjusts its speed to comply with road signs. KEY BENEFITS ACCESS AND SAFETY, Fully autonomous cars will negate the need for driving restric. tions relating to age and ability because the only prerequisite for. making a journey may be the ability to program a destination A. six year old may take himself to school or an older person stay in. dependent for longer This increase in access to mobility should. facilitate the active participation of the 22 percent of the world s. population who will be over 60 in 2050 To highlight the potential. of driverless cars to assist people with disabilities a Google. car has recently driven a blind man to Taco Bell for a take out. Increasing road safety will be the most critical benefit of driv. erless cars At the moment there are 1 24 million road traffic. deaths worldwide every year 50 percent are pedestrians Driverless cars operate by amassing. information from cameras sensors geo, cyclists and motorcyclists and road traffic accidents are the location devices including radar digital. number one cause of death for those aged between 15 and maps navigation programming and. 29 years Around 90 percent of all traffic accidents are caused communication from other connected. vehicles and infrastructure, by human error whether distraction by phone calls or texts.
