In 2008, a brilliant team of professors from the worlds of engineering and semiconductors set out to develop extraordinarily efficient lighting. Nobel laureate Dr. Shuji Nakamura, Dr. Steven DenBaars and Dr. James Speck’s pursuit of perfection led to the development of a revolutionarily type of light—a violet LED made from pure gallium nitride substrates.

Our gallium nitride on gallium nitride (GaN on GaN™) technology emits more light per LED material, handles more electric current per area and has crystals that are up to one thousand times more precise than any other LED and enables full visible spectrum light. To bring this simply perfect light source to life, the team founded Soraa. It's basically like the Ferrari of LED lights.

8 years later, we've built a line of lamps and light engines around this innovative light source. Our distinctive products feature an intense single point source LED with full visible spectrum light, Flicker Free™ digital driver, unique heat dissipating heat sink, and point source optics.

We're headquartered in Fremont, California, where our talented team manufactures the GaN on GaN™ LEDs in a crazy awesome semiconductor fabrication facility. We are also building a new facility in Syracuse, New York. We have sales offices and distributors worldwide to help bring our perfect lights to you no matter where you are.
