BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia – which was spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University in 2005 – has appointed Dr Mike Krames as advisor, serving in a strategic and technical capacity to provide expert guidance on the technical development and commercialization plans of RPCVD.

BluGlass is commercializing its proprietary low-temperature remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) process for manufacturing indium gallium nitride (InGaN)-based LEDs, power electronics and solar cells, offering advantages including higher performance and lower cost, it is claimed.

Krames has more than 20 years of leadership experience in the compound semiconductor industry, especially in LEDs and their applications to lighting and displays. In 2015, he established US-based Arkesso LLC, an independent advisory and technology development consultancy. Previously, he was chief technology officer at LED firm Soraa Inc (founded by Nobel Prize winner Shuji Nakamura) and executive VP at Philips Lumileds. There, he ran the Advanced Laboratories and pioneered programs in LEDs and related materials, including leading the development of the technology necessary to enable LEDs to serve as automotive headlights for the first time.

“The appointment of Mike to advise BluGlass at this pivotal stage of our development represents a fantastic opportunity for the company to gain expert technical and commercial guidance from one of the recognized nitride industry leaders,” comments managing director Giles Bourne.

Krames has served on numerous roundtables and panels for the US Department of Energy (DOE) and its Basic Energy Sciences (BES) program. He is an IEEE fellow and chair of the SPIE Photonics West conference on Light-Emitting Diodes. He is author of over 80 peer-reviewed publications and more than 100 granted US patents and has served on several boards of directors/advisors.
