Bluglass Appoints Industry Expert Mike Krames


Ex-CTO of Soraa to assist in the commercialisation of BluGlass' low temperature RPCVD technology

BluGlass, the Australian developer of Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) for making LEDs and other devices, has appointed Mike Krames as an advisor to the company. Krames will provide expert guidance on the technical development and commercialisation plans of RPCVD.

Krames has more than 20 years' leadership experience in the compound semiconductor industry and is a recognised world authority on LEDs and their applications for lighting and displays. In 2015, Krames established Arkess LLC, an independent advisory and technology development consultancy based in the US.

Prior to this he was CTO at Soraa, an LED company founded by Nobel Prize winner Shuji Nakamura, and, executive VP at Philips Lumileds. There, he ran the Advanced Laboratories and pioneered programs in LEDs and related materials, including leading the development of the technology necessary to enable LEDs to serve as automotive headlights for the first time.

Krames will advise the company in a strategic and technical capacity to assist in the commercialisation of BluGlass' low temperature RPCVD technology. Managing director Giles Bourne said: "The appointment of Mike to advise BluGlass at this pivotal stage of our development represents a fantastic opportunity for the company to gain expert technical and commercial guidance from one of the recognised nitride industry leaders."

Krames has served on numerous roundtables and panels for the US Department of Energy and Basic Energy Sciences. He is an IEEE Fellow and Chair of the SPIE Photonics West Conference on LEDs. He has over 80 peer-reviewed publications and more than 100 granted US patents, and has served on several boards of directors/advisors.
