Energise LEDs with Intematix` Ruby phosphors

The firm's new red nitride phosphors bridge the gap in the colour spectrum and create quality light in the most demanding applications. They are suited to general lighting and backlighting of displays

Intematix has released the Ruby series of red nitride phosphors that it says enable exceptional efficacy, colour rendering and reliability for high-power LEDs.

Red makes everything more appealing. The addition of the right red to create white phosphor blends makes colours appear richer, vibrant and more natural.

These phosphors, backed by Intematix U.S. patent No. 8,274,215, are ideal for applications such as general lighting and backlighting for LCD TVs.

“Building on a decade of innovative work in phosphor, our substantial investments in materials and process research led to this breakthrough in both moisture stability and quantum efficiency where customers need it most,” says Yi-Qun Li, Chief Technology Officer for Intematix.

“These properties of our Ruby red nitride help ensure that customers will see long lifetimes and consistent performance across the operating conditions of their LEDs for all lighting applications.”

Red nitride phosphors fill crucial gaps in the colour spectrum and create quality light in the most demanding applications. Intematix believes its red nitrides in combination with the firm's GAL phosphor enable near-perfect colour rendering up to 98 CRI. Intematix red nitrides used in blends with GAL phosphors also enable 100 lm/W efficacy in warm white packages.

Intematix’s U.S. Patent No. 8,274,215 is the 18th U.S. patent issued to the company in the area of LED phosphors and the 71st U.S Patent overall.

Intematix also has over 300 pending patent applications covering LED phosphor and lighting technologies on a world-wide basis.

The Ruby series expands the company’s wide range of phosphors, adding to its portfolio of nitride, silicate, aluminate, and garnet phosphors.
