Researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara say that they have discovered how to formulate LED phosphors for better efficiency, while Cree has announced a licensing agreement with NNCrystal covering remote phosphor IP. A team working at the Solid State Lighting & Energy Center (SSLEC) at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) has announced a breakthrough in phosphor research that they believe could allow LED efficacy to hit 300 lm/W. In other phosphor news, Cree licensed its remote-phosphor patent portfolio to NNCrystal, a set of intellectual property (IP) that Cree has maintained was fundamental to remote-phosphor-based solid-state lighting (SSL) products.
