Light Polymers Introduces Liquid-Crystal-Based Remote Phosphor Flexible Film for LED Lighting

Light Polymers is introducing the world's first liquid-crystal-based remote phosphor flexible film. In LED lighting, a remote phosphor film moves the blue-to-white-light converting phosphor material from the LED itself to the substrate that is located a short distance from the LEDs. This has many benefits in terms of efficiency improvement (20 to 30%), reduced glare, improved reliability and better uniformity of brightness and color reproduction. The new material from Light Polymers offers the same performance benefits, but at much lower cost and the ability to deposit on flexible substrates (current solutions are on rigid substrates).
