Russell Dupuis spoke about the evolution of LEDs and lighting, as well as its future applications, on Acast, a podcast hosted by Lord John Browne, director of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering. Dupuis holds the Steve W. Chaddick Endowed Chair in Electro-Optics and is a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech.
Dupuis was named as a co-recipient of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering earlier this year with his colleagues Nick Holonyak Jr. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Isamu Akasaki (Nagoya University and Meijo University in Japan), M. George Craford (Philips Lumileds Lighting Company), and Shuji Nakamura (University of California, Santa Barbara). They were recognized not only for the global impact of LED and solid-state lighting, but also for the tremendous contribution that LED technology has made, and will continue to make, to reducing energy consumption and addressing climate change.
