In a groundbreaking effort, IMS Research has released the first market research report characterizing the supply side of white and RGB LED production used for high brightness (HB) LEDs. HB LEDs, including GaN and InGaN, have been experiencing record breaking growth from early 2009 as a result of the rapid shift to LEDs in notebook displays. While this growth continues to accelerate, other markets are also increasingly migrating to LEDs such as signaling, very large outdoor displays, digital billboards, personal lighting, automotive and industrial.
A recent survey of solar cell/photovoltaic device researchers and manufacturers working in government, university-based, and corporate labs and manufacturing facilities indicates distinct differences in testing methods and priorities among respondents from Asia, North America, and Europe. Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE: KEI) conducted the study during Summer 2009 using a by-invitation-only online survey generating 564 responses.
