Intematix Introduces ChromaLit™ Remote Phosphor Lighting Systems

ChromaLit™ leverages a phosphor composite precisely layered onto a substrate, separated from the blue LED energy source. The independent phosphor emits light when excited by blue light. Because the phosphor has been separated from the energy source and can now be made in any shape and any color, unidirectional light, hot spots, inconsistency and design limitations are no longer SSL challenges.

Unprecedented Design Freedom:
The ChromaLit collection implements precision optics manufacturing and Intematix’s cutting-edge phosphor technology to provide lighting manufacturers with the capability to create previously unimaginable lighting systems in any shape and any color. Completely customizable in geometry, color temperature, CRI and substrate material, ChromaLit products offer flexibility and creative opportunities never before seen in luminaires. Uniform, curvilinear and three-dimensional lighting designs are now made possible where challenges existed with conventional LED approaches.

Brilliant Light Quality:
Design with ChromaLit to harness a glare-free, diffuse light source and create consistent, high-quality light across multiple fixtures. Unique patterns enhance color rendering, and Intematix’s proprietary technology enables stable phosphor performance over the module’s lifetime and color-consistent, uniform luminaires.

Process Problems Solved:
The interchangeability of ChromaLit simplifies binning management and reduces inventory of luminaires of wide spectral range. ChromaLit systems easily achieve multiple color specifications without replacing the entire luminaire. One standardized LED energy source can power multiple CCT, CRI and R9 requirements by simply replacing the ChromaLit, so one blue LED energy supply can be stocked alongside compact and easily swappable ChromaLit. As blue LEDs continue to improve in efficacy, the same ChromaLit can be easily integrated into new systems.

Unparalleled Lifetime Efficacy:
ChromaLit offers up to 30 percent higher system efficacy than conventional LED lighting systems by operating at a lower temperature, maximizing photon extraction and removing the diffuser. By relocating the light production process away from the energy source, the ChromaLit architecture produces significantly more light per input power, increases LED package lifetime and reduces LED chip junction temperature. ChromaLit system designs can take advantage of fewer LEDs, smaller heat sinks, higher LED drive currents and reduced energy usage.

Future Possibilities:
Our labs are continually developing new materials and improved processes. In the future, these advances will bring:

• Improved optical control
• Extended color temperature and CRI options
• Diverse environmental viability
• Specified shapes and sizes
