Shuji Nakamura, the inspiration for Crimson Interactive's in-house Japanese publication, wins the eminent Nobel Prize in Physics 2014!
Shuji Nakamura along with Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano has been awarded the eminent Nobel Prize in Physics for the year 2014 for his unparalleled contribution in the field “for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources”. The prize was announced on 7th October 2014 in Stockholm by Staffan Normark, Permanent Secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The academy said that the new light source is brighter, cleaner, and longer-lasting than previous sources and would save energy as well as improve the quality of life of millions of people around the globe.
Enago’s Association with Shuji Nakamura:
At Crimson Interactive we are often made aware of challenges faced by non-native English authors while tackling the English language. We came up with an innovative method to capture the stories of Japanese authors who have successfully overcome this language barrier in a bid to encourage budding authors to publish their work in international journals. The project resulted in Crimson’s first in-house Japanese publication:英語のバカヤロー! ~「英語の壁」に挑んだ12人の日本人~ (English, I hate you—12 Japanese authors who tackled the English language barrier). We would like to sincerely thank Dr. Shuji Nakamura for being an integral part of this endeavor by sharing his experience of publishing in English language despite being a non-native English speaker. His experience is undoubtedly a source of inspiration for aspiring young researchers hoping to publish their work in international journals.
About Shuji Nakamura:
Shuji Nakamura teaches at the Materials Department of the College of Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara. Nakamura graduated from the University of Tokushima in 1977 with a degree in electronic engineering. He went on to obtain a master’s degree in the same subject two years later, after which he joined the Nichia Corporation, also based in Tokushima. During his employment with Nichia, Nakamura invented the first high brightness GaN LED. The brilliant blue light, of the GaN LED, when partially converted to yellow by a phosphor coating, creates white LED lighting.
