Lumileds and BluGlass to co-develop RPCVD-enhanced LEDs

BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia has entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement with Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA (which manufactures and distributes LEDs and automotive lighting products). The two firms will work together to explore potential use of low-temperature remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) for specific LED applications defined by the agreement (which follows an initial collaboration between the two firms announced last November).

Spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University of Sydney, Australia in 2005, BluGlass developed a low-temperature process using RPCVD to grow materials including gallium nitride (GaN) and indium gallium nitride (InGaN) on glass substrates, potentially offering cost, throughput and efficiency advantages for the production of LEDs. Based on its RPCVD technology, BluGlass has hence developed patented hardware and processes targeting the production of more efficient semiconductor devices (both LEDs and power electronics) at lower cost.

The initial terms of the collaboration are envisioned to continue for 6-12 months. BluGlass will provide exclusivity of the RPCVD technology (for the specific field of use as stipulated in the agreement) to Lumileds for the period of the collaboration.

The collaboration will not prevent BluGlass from entering into any other agreements concerning RPCVD equipment development, manufacturing or sale and will not restrict the use of RPCVD outside the specific field of use in LEDs. BluGlass is continuing its industry evaluation agreements in other fields of use, including green LEDs, power electronics and RPCVD equipment development.
