BluGlass and Lumileds extend collaboration
Australian technology innovator BluGlass Limited has entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement with LED company Lumileds.
The two companies will work together to explore potential use of low temperature Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) for specific LED applications defined by the agreement. This agreement follows on from the initial collaboration of BluGlass and Lumileds in November 2015.
BluGlass has developed patented hardware and processes targeting the production of more efficient semiconductor devices at lower cost using its RPCVD semiconductor technology. The low temperature process, which is used to grow semiconductor materials such as GaN and InGaN, is designed for the production of high efficiency devices such as next generation lighting technology LEDs with advanced performance and low cost potential.
The initial terms of the collaboration are envisioned to continue for approximately six to twelve months. BluGlass will provide exclusivity of the RPCVD technology, for the specific field of use as stipulated in the agreement, to Lumileds for the period of the collaboration.
The collaboration will not prevent BluGlass from entering into any other agreements pertaining to the RPCVD equipment development, manufacturing or sale and will not restrict the use of RPCVD outside of the specific field of use in LEDs.
BluGlass is continuing its industry evaluation agreements in other fields of use including green LEDs, power electronics and RPCVD equipment development.
