RESEARCH TRIANGLE, N.C., 20 Jan. 2007. Cyberlux Corporation, a developer and manufacturer of solid-state lighting solutions, intends to introduce breakthrough lighting products created through the combination of the hybrid organic/inorganic white and multi-color lighting technology acquired from the University of California-Santa Barbara with the Scattered Photon Extraction (SPE) technology acquired from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Cyberlux will commercialize the resulting proprietary lighting technology as "Hybrid White Light" (HWL) and "Hybrid Multi-color Light" (HML). The resulting lighting technology is expected to yield a more low-cost, energy-efficient lighting source than currently available in solid-state light-emitting diode (LED) solutions.
Traditional LED lighting sources produce light when a solid-state material emits a photon through a phosphor downconversion material to create white and multi-color light. With HWL and HML, the phosphor is replaced with a less costly, more efficient polymer or organic film downconversion material.
In addition, the use of the SPE technology improves the light output and efficacy of the resulting light source. Because of the fundamental difference in the nature of the HWL and HML technologies, Cyberlux intends to market the technology across large industry market segments through OEM licensing and Cyberlux product solutions for military and homeland security applications.
