About Us


Company History

Nitek is a pioneer in the field of III-Nitride semiconductors with special emphasis on manufacturing ultraviolet light emitting diodes using next generation novel materials such as high quality aluminum nitride (AlN) and aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN). The company was launched in early 2007 with the goal of commercializing III-Nitride technologies. It is a spin-off from Prof. Asif Khan's Photonics and Microelectronics Laboratory at the University of South Carolina.

Nitek’s product development team has an extensive background in III-Nitride materials, devices and application systems development. Through our partnerships with leading global companies, Nitek can provide a full spectrum of ultraviolet (UV) LED chips, packages, and systems.

Corporate Vision

Nitek’s vision is to become a global supplier of mercury free semiconductor ultraviolet sources for a healthy and safer world.
