CUSTOM PHOSPHOR MATERIALS FOR LED APPLICATIONS


Our chemical expertise allows us to manufacture custom phosphor materials compositions in the stoichiometry, size and purity you require. Phosphor materials are useful in a range of applications including radar screens, computer monitors, smart phones, flat screen TVs, plasma video displays, display screens. In addition, our phosphor compounds are used in interior and exterior automotive lighting, safety and traffic display signs and general LED illumination.

MAXIMIZE SHELF LIFE OF PHOSPHOR MATERIALS

Materion manufactures phosphor precursor compounds for both the host materials and activators. We use special processes to deal with phosphor sensitivity to oxygen, moisture and temperature. These processes provide optimal moisture protection and with the addition of our meticulous packaging, extend the life of phosphor materials.

INSTRUMENTAL TO LED APPLICATIONS

Our phosphor materials are critical components to LED lighting’s luminescence and a range of consumer electronics including:

  • Calcium, barium and strontium pre-cursor compounds are key in converting blue light-emitting diodes (LED) into white light emission
  • Phosphor materials are available in a variety of forms, mesh sizes and purities, including powders, targets, granules and pieces
  • Adaptation of phosphor materials to exact specifications and scale manufacturing of quantities from R&D to full production levels
