Dr. Hongxing Jiang
Fellow of the American Physical Society, Professor of Texas Tech University
Dr. Hongxing Jiang received his B.S. in Physics in 1981 from Fudan University, China and Ph.D. in Physics in 1986 from Syracuse University, USA. Dr. Jiang devotes his research efforts to the advancement of III-nitride semiconductor technologies. His team has developed microLED technology, leading to the realization of self-emissive microdisplays and single-chip hig-voltage DC/AC-LEDs. Currently, he directs the Nanophotonics Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) and is the inaugural Edward E. Whitacre Jr. endowed chair and Horn distinguished professor. Dr. Jiang has more than 400 journal publications and 20 patents with over 15,000 citations and an h-index of 68, edited 15 books, and delivered more than 140 invited talks. He relocated his research group to TTU from Kansas State University where he served as a university distinguished professor of physics until 2008. Dr. Jiang is the co-founder and owner of III-N Technology, Inc., which hold and controls a portfolio of microLED related technologies. He is a fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America and SPIE.
Since our invention, micro-size light emitting diode (µLED) arrays based on III-nitride semiconductors have emerged as a promising technology for a range of applications. This talk provides an overview on the development and the uses of nitride -LEDs including high brightness self-emissive microdisplays and -LED displays. Future perspectives in nitride -LED technology development and applications will also be discussed.
