New Luminescent Material for Warm LED Light
Researchers from Siemens Corporate Technology and Osram have discovered a new dark red luminescent material for light-emitting diodes. This was made possible by the use of a material develop-ment method known as High Throughput Experimentation (HTE), which allows the screening of large composition areas of complex material systems. The new luminescent material can be used, for example, for warm-toned white LEDs for general lighting, for backlight...
