Intematix launches green aluminate and red nitride phosphor materials for white LEDs

Materials developer Intematix Corp of Fremont, CA, USA, which makes customizable, patented phosphors for LED applications, has added two new phosphor families to their product line, creating what it claims is the broadest portfolio of LED phosphors on the market. The new phosphors are green aluminate and red nitride materials, which enable high-quality white illumination when applied to blue LEDs.

“These latest innovations from Intematix enable the widest color gamut for TVs and displays, as well as the perfect warm light for your home,” says CEO Mark Swoboda (former CEO of LED maker Bridgelux of Livermore, CA, who joined Intematix in August).

Intematix claims that the new phosphor families meet the challenging material requirements for display backlighting and general lighting applications by offering an improved color spectrum and superior color rendering to LED lamps compared with current solutions. Both phosphor families advance the performance of existing lighting systems, improving color quality, thermal stability and lifetime reliability.

To develop the green aluminate and red nitride phosphors, Intematix applied its proprietary C-MAT Synthesis accelerated materials discovery and development process. The firm says that, by testing millions of combinations at once, it can develop materials for LED performance with optimized particle morphology and high quantum efficiency.
