Emmanual Lakios brings over 30 years experience to UV LED specialist

Sensor Electronics Technology Inc, SETi, a US company specialising in UV LED development and manufacturing, located in Columbia South Carolina, announced today that Emmanuel Lakios has joined the company as President and CEO.

Lakios joins SETi with 30 years of technology and business management experience.  Prior to joining SETi he held positions as president and COO of Imago Scientific Instruments and 20 years at Veeco Instruments, where he held various senior management positions including president  and general manager ofpProcess equipment and president of field operations.

In his new role, Emmanuel will build upon the existing technical excellence and organidation and will coordinate all company activities.

Emmanuel brings a strong track record in technology management, strategic market development, and operational performance. Lakios has over 30 years of experience in Semiconductor and equipment industry.

"SETi has a great opportunity for growth with its leading edge deep UV LED technology," commented Lakios. "New applications for this class of LEDs emerge daily. Our mission is to maintain our technical leadership and product position, addressing the requirements of the marketplaces we serve".

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
