An Epistar investment in Oree, and a joint development agreement between Asahi Kasei and Crystal IS, bodes an even brighter future for LEDs.

Epistar Corp. has injected some funds into Oree Inc. for the development of its flat solid state light source, dubbed the light cell; Oree's light source is thin and flat, about the size of a credit card. Suited for general lighting applications, decorative and architectural lighting and backlighting for LCD panels, the light cell is scheduled for high-volume production by early 2011.

Meanwhile, Asahi Kasei Corp. has signed a joint development agreement with Crystal IS Inc. to create a manufacturing process for large diameter aluminium nitride substrates based on Crystal IS proprietary IP. The "Aluminium nitride substrates are a critical component in the fabrication of ultraviolet (UVC) LEDs for energy efficient water and air sterilisation applications," explained Steven Berger, CEO, Crystal IS.
