BluGlass And Lumileds Extend Collaboration

Companies to explore potential of low temperature RPCVD process for LEDs

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.

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.
