Corporate Information

Having "Ever Researching for a Brighter World" as our motto, Nichia has grown in the field of manufacturing and sales of fine chemicals, particularly inorganic luminescent materials (phosphors). In the process of the challenging pursuit of brighter luminescent and light-emitting materials, we succeeded in developing and commercializing the super high brightness Blue LED in 1993. It was accepted with great amazement in the related industries throughout the world. Since the first announcement of the Blue LED in 1993, Nitride-based LEDs in different emission colors ranging from Ultraviolet to Yellow have been contributing to the diversification of LED application fields. In addition to LEDs, a lot of resources are now being focused on the R/D of bluish purple laser diodes, which will definitely play a key role for the further expansion of the information media industry. We have a belief that Nitride-based semiconductors will become one of the most exciting areas of the semiconductor industry in the near future.We hope that Nichia will continue to be a company that will be able to make a contribution to the world by evolving its original and unique technologies in the field of manufacturing.
