The Physics of Success: Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Shuji Nakamura on Fostering Innovation

Dr. Shuji Nakamura, Professor of Materials at the University of California, Santa Barbara, earned the 2014 Nobel Prize for Physics for his invention of the blue light emitting diode (LED), a result of his tireless devotion to his research in the field of semiconductor technology. Now a Nobel laureate and holder of over 100 patents, Dr. Nakamura has the primary goal of fostering innovation in the U.S. and Japan. In this lecture, he discusses his achievements, his thoughts on innovation in Japan and the U.S., and the effect that Japan’s corporate culture has on its scientists. Dr. Nakamura, a strong proponent for revolutionizing Japan’s corporate and educational structures, also touches upon what Japan can do as a nation to improve the way it conducts business.
