Boston University is alleging that Apple has infringed on one of their patents relating to a thin gallium nitride film semiconductor that can produce blue lasers compactly and cheaply.
According to Boston University, who have filed a lawsuit against Apple, the gallium nitrate film is apparently used in some of Apple’s displays for the iPhone, iPad and the MacBook Air.
Boston University is apparently not using the patent, and it expires at the end of 2014, whether this will end up in court remains to be seen.
