Wide bandgap semiconductor materials such as gallium nitride can significantly outperform traditional silicon-based devices in power electronics and light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
New materials are on the horizon. Emerging materials such as aluminum nitride (AlN) are ideally suited to very low wavelength, ultraviolet LED, green laser diode, and high-switching-frequency power electronics applications, and can be an effective alternative to bulk GaN.

The food and beverage industries are turning to UV light as a non-chemical disinfection method. UV kills all known spoilage microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, yeasts and moulds (and their spores). It is a low maintenance, environmentally friendly technology which eliminates the need for chemical treatment while ensuring high levels of disinfection.

The Missile Defense Agency is funding development of Deep-ultraviolet LEDs for water sterilization. Current systems rely on high-voltage mercury discharge lamps that guzzle energy, need high-voltage electronics, and contain hazardous mercury. In addition, the lamps burn out after about 8,000 hours and only emit certain fixed-UV wavelengths.
