White Paper: Lumen Gain with Zirconia-Silicone Nanocomposites for LED Encapsulation

May 29, 2015
Pixelligent’s zirconia-silicone nanocomposite materials deliver up to 7% lumen output increase to packaged LEDs over a standard methyl silicone alone in a YAG-based phosphor layer. The nanocomposite combines the benefit of high-refractive index without the need for phenyl functional groups in a silicone system and is designed for use in either spray or dispense processes. Lumen efficiency gains over a standard methyl silicone and lumen equivalence compared to a methyl phenyl silicone can be achieved with a conventional LED chip architecture, a dispensable single phosphor-silicone mixture and a hemispherical lens.

White Paper: Pixelligent Zirconia Nanocrystals for OLED Applications

September 11, 2014
Although Organic Light Emitting Devices (OLED) have a great promise of providing a novel and highly energy efficient form of general lighting, one of the main barriers to their commercial adoption is the poor extraction efficiency of the light produced in the device. At the heart of this problem is the refractive index mismatch and almost all internal light extraction scheme requires a high refractive index material
