Light Polymers And Cree Sign Patent License


Light Polymers to deliver next generation of LED optics for more comfortable, safer and higher quality lighting

Light Polymers has announced a patent license-agreement with US LED firm Cree that will allow Light Polymers to apply its nanochemistry to make luminaires with special photonic films that that enhance efficiency and effectiveness.

"This patent licensing agreement with Cree is a big step in helping Light Polymers deliver the next generation of LED optics that enable more comfortable, safer and higher quality, well distributed lighting for homes and businesses," said Marc McConnaughey, CEO at Light Polymers.

Light Polymers recently introduced its Crystallin Downlight product line using lyotropic materials that deliver a CRI (Color Rendering Index) as high as 98. Light Polymers' proprietary lyotropic materials can make a significant impact on the global lighting industry by improving LED optics and paving the way for well-distributed lighting with much higher CRI and at affordable prices.

Light Polymers is a nanochemistry company founded in 2013 in San Francisco. It's particular expertise is in lyotropic liquid crystals, which have applications in LCD and OLED flat panel displays, LED lighting, advanced building materials and biomedical applications.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
