Within the area of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) and OLEDs for lighting purposes NIL have found its use in both mass production as well as in R&D. Obducat’s NIL technology was deployed in volume manufacturing already in 2006 of LEDs based on Photonic Crystals (PhC). Products such as micro projects as well as HD projectors produced by world leading companies such as LG, Samsung and JVC incorporated LEDs produced with Obducat’s first generation NIL technology for mass production.
Obducat’s second generation NIL technology for mass production, launched in 2014, is currently being deployed for patterning of sapphire substrates (PSS) used in LED production.
Obducat’s NIL technology is also being used in pilot lines for Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) to be used for lighting purposes .
Obducat is also highly involved in driving the industry towards the use of larger substrates as well as the industrial introduction of Nano based PSS which provides further improved cost of ownership and LED performance.
