Brief description Light emitting diode devices play a critical role in emerging technologies with important current and future applications in medicine, health, horticulture, nanotechnology, biology and photonics. The basic laws of optics, however, only allow a very small amount of light to escape their surfaces due to very strong intrinsic internal reflection. This project aims to optimally couple light by design to nanostructured metal – low loss zinc oxide surface coatings to significantly improve the light extraction efficiency. These breakthroughs in nanoscience and nanotechnology will lead to enhanced LED performance, efficiency and longevity.
