IEEE awards George Craford for Contributions to LED Lighting

Lumileds has announced that George Craford, Lumileds Solid State Lighting Fellow, was selected for the IEEE Edison Medal for ‘a lifetime of pioneering contributions to the development and commercialisation of visible LED materials and devices’. Craford will be presented with the medal at the IEEE Honours Ceremony in San Francisco on May 25, 2017, during the IEEE Vision, Innovations, and Challenges (IEEE VIC) Summit. Craford’s career spans from the early days when LEDs were first developed to delivery of high brightness LEDs suitable for commercial use in a variety of applications, including LED bulbs. He is best known for his invention of the yellow LED in 1972. Craford then led the development of increasingly brighter red, orange and amber LEDs.
