The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was shared by UCSB Professor Shuji Nakamura "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources". 

Professor Nakamura is a major user of the Shared Experimental Facilities of the UCSB MRSEC, co-authoring multiple publications every year that acknowledge the NSF-MRSEC grant number DMR 1121053.
