Fuentek to Assist in Technology Transfer of High Efficiency Amber LEDs
(November 26, 2013)
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Fuentek, LLC, one of the world’s leading intellectual property (IP) and technology transfer consulting firms, announced that it is assisting the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the technology transfer of new Amber LEDs. NREL is quickly closing the LED “green gap” with its newest patent-pending technology that will make it easier to manufacture low-cost Amber LEDs. To kick-off the discussion, NREL will host a technology licensing webinar on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.
NREL’s Amber LEDs, when combined with red, green, and blue LEDs, produce a broad-spectrum white light that is more efficient than current LEDs. This new technology results in a low-cost, easy-to-manufacture white LED, with improved luminosity. In addition, this color-mixing approach avoids the energy loss associated with producing white light via conventional LEDs. The new approach will have an impact across multiple industries, including solid-state lighting, photovoltaics, and lasers.
“The technology behind NREL’s Amber LEDs and the color-mixing approach has the power to revolutionize numerous markets for solid-state lighting between industries and businesses down to the consumer,” said Laura Schoppe, President of Fuentek, LLC. “We are eager to share the science behind this cutting-edge technology developed by NREL in order to explore one of the most efficient light sources we have ever seen.”
