Darmstadt, Germany, April 10, 2017 /Korea IT Times– Merck, a science and technology company, presented its brand-new isiphor® Full Spectrum (FS) phosphors at the Phosphor Global Summit 2017 in La Jolla, California. Merck’s Full Spectrum phosphors are intended for application in violet chip-based LEDs. This violet LED chip trend enables highest color quality, a sun-like spectrum, and lower efficiency droop at high power conditions. Also, optimum white and skin rendering is achieved. To round off these features, Merck’s phosphors are specifically designed to reproduce the chronological sequence of natural light as people spend more and more time indoors. This allows human-centric lighting and sleep-wake cycles to be maintained even without natural daylight.
These brand new FS phosphors which add onto the existing isiphor® portfolio
feature unique characteristics such as non-reabsorption, high conversion efficiency,
higher freedom of spectra design and less color point variation to optimize binning
yield significantly. In addition, these phosphors help to save energy.
Merck offers a uniquely wide portfolio of advanced materials for the LED
manufacturing value chain. Beyond FS phosphors, isiphor® products include
innovative phosphors for vivid colors for general lighting applications as well as
reliable phosphors for backlighting applications.
As the inventor and market leader with a long history of developing lithographic products for the LED industry, Merck
provides cost-effective, high-performance photoresists for high throughput, better
adhesion and increased thermal stability in substrate patterning and chip
To cover more steps of the LED value chain, high-purity
metalorganic precursors with high batch-to-batch uniformity for improved yield in
LED chip manufacturing are part of the portfolio as well. Lastly, Merck provides novel
binder spray materials for the LED industry offering new possibilities for LED
packaging, especially in high power applications.
