BluGlass collaborates with microLED firm to develop novel RGB display applications

BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia – which was spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University in 2005 – has entered into a collaboration agreement with a “well-funded European pioneer in the microLED industry” to investigate the use of BluGlass’ proprietary remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) manufacturing technology. The collaboration is exploring a novel application with what is described as significant commercial potential.

BluGlass is commercializing its proprietary low-temperature RPCVD process for manufacturing indium gallium nitride (InGaN)-based LEDs, power electronics and solar cells, offering advantages including higher performance and lower cost, it is claimed.

The two firms will work together to demonstrate proof of concept of a unique red, green and blue (RGB) microLED display application using the low-temperature process. BluGlass will be paid for its deposition services and retain all RPCVD-related intellectual property rights resulting from the collaboration.

“The microLED market is an enormous opportunity for RPCVD within one of the fastest-growing LED market segments, with applications in wearables (watches), mobile displays, next-generation TV displays, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR),” comments managing director Giles Bourne. “The inherent advantages of RPCVD lends itself to RGB LEDs, required in micro-displays,” he adds. “Low-temperature RPCVD could be key to unlocking high performance of longer-wavelength LEDs (green and red LEDs) and be part of an enabling technology solution.”
