Dr. Bernhard Stapp has joined board of directors of Aledia

Dr. Bernhard Stapp has joined board of directors of Aledia, a 3D LED technology company. Stapp was most recently in senior management positions at OSRAM, a global leader in SSL manufacturing and marketing. “Aledia’s mission is to bring fundamental change to the world’s lighting markets by making LED technology substantially more affordable and more versatile, with better performance and fewer limitations,” said Giorgio Anania, Aledia’s co-founder, president and CEO. “Bernhard has been a key player at the heart of the global LED industry since its inception, and also has an outstanding technical background. His unique perspective on this industry’s future will be invaluable as Aledia moves into the next stage of its evolution.” WireLED, Aledia’s unique 3D microwire GaN-on-silicon technology, was developed at the CEA-Leti nanotech research institute in Grenoble. Aledia uses technology to produce LEDs on inexpensive industry-standard 200mm silicon wafers using standard semiconductor processes and tools. “Aledia’s technology is, quite simply, a breakthrough for the entire LED sector,” said Stapp. “It can meet the industry’s critical requirement for cost-reduction, while using far simpler production processes and much less material than conventional approaches. I am very excited about the opportunity to join this team.”
