We develop, manufacture and sell light emitting diode (LED) chips and LED
components. Our products are used primarily for general lighting applications,
including street lights and commercial, industrial and residential lighting. Our
LED chips may also be used in specialty industrial applications, such as
ultraviolet, or UV, curing of polymers, LED light therapy in medical/cosmetic
applications, counterfeit detection, LED lighting for horticulture applications,
architectural lighting and entertainment lighting.
Utilizing our patented and proprietary technology, our manufacturing process
begins by growing upon the surface of a sapphire wafer, or substrate, several
very thin separate semiconductive crystalline layers of gallium nitride, or GaN,
a process known as epitaxial growth, on top of which a mirrorlike reflective
silver layer is then deposited.
