Intematix awarded key new patent on remote phosphor
Intematix Corporation, a leading innovator of patented phosphors and phosphor components for high-quality LED lighting, has been awarded U.S. patent number 8,376,580 Light Emitting Diode (LED) Based Lighting Systems on its remote phosphor technology.
This patent marks the 21st remote phosphor patent the Company has received.
This new patent contains broad and fundamental claims covering a wide variety of remote phosphor systems and applications. Allowed claims cover various two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes used in remote phosphor systems. Application coverage includes remote phosphor systems where the phosphor is provided as a surface layer on a carrier such as in the 2D ChromaLit and ChromaLit XT products, as well as phosphor incorporated into the bulk material for three-dimensional, or shaped, phosphor components, such as the ChromaLit Contour and ChromaLit 360 product lines. The patent also covers the inclusion of features to enhance light extraction; further expanding the benefits of remote phosphor systems over that of conventional white LED based lighting systems.
“At Intematix we continue to invest heavily in technology development and intellectual property. We are committed to enabling high quality, energy efficient lighting, and believe that remote phosphor technology delivers both increased performance and lower costs for our customers,” stated Mark Swoboda, CEO of Intematix. “The continued expansion of our IP portfolio validates our technology leadership in this area and will help to expand the growth of the solid state lighting market.”
