Light and the way it interacts with different materials has always fascinated us. We develop high-tech chemicals for progressive industries like Photonics, Solar and Lighting.
The sun inside
Our key materials enable the production of tiny chips of semiconductor crystals, called light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and they refine the emitted light. For example, the color temperature of LED lamps can be adjusted to generate natural white light – just like the sun.
Medical imaging—locating cancer
Locating and monitoring tumors and metastases is a key pillar of successful cancer therapies.
About the technology
Marking cancer cells with weak radioactive substances makes them radiate. These rays are transformed into visible light by scintillating materials, providing the diagnostic image.Learn more
To get the best image quality, single crystals of these scintillator materials are needed. It takes weeks to grow one crystal! Our high-purity Optipur? materials prevent defects and ensure a high yield in this expensive and sensitive process.
THE FUTURE IN SIGHT
Scintillators for advanced medical imaging and optical interfaces in mobile electronics are just two fast-growing technologies that are improving our lives. We provide high-quality materials for a variety of optical applications.
LAYERS OF LIGHT
In conventional lamps, electricity causes a filament or gas to glow. In organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), it flows through ultrafine organic layers one hundred times thinner than a single hair. These extremely flat diodes are highly energy-efficient and offer completely new ways of lighting design. We are a leading manufacturer of premium materials for OLEDs and are dedicated to advancing this technology to commercialization.
