Toshiba LED chips

Yup they make LED lamps too.

But more importantly they have been tinkering with some technical stuff particularly with a substance called Gallium-Nitride. What! And Why?

Most LED chips are made on a sapphire or silicon carbide substrate which is expensive. The Gallium-Nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) technology, licensed from American LED company Bridgelux, mass produced will make the chips cheaper (Although the light output may need improving a little) and further bring down the cost of LED lamps.

No bowing before men in white coats, it is embarrassing to watch!
