Evident Technologies Launches Nanotechnology-Based LED Products

Evident Technologies Inc. announced the commercial availability of its evidot LED products based on semiconductor nanocrystal technology. Whereas traditional LEDs are available in a limited set of standard colors (blue, green, red, etc.), Evident’s new products enables LEDs to emit any color, including high-quality white light.

“This nanotechnology breakthrough enables us to make LEDs of any color without requiring complex electronic controls, liberating the end-user or designer to dream up many new applications,” stated Clint Ballinger, CEO of Evident Technologies. “The limitations of designing a product around the existing, traditional colored LED are removed.”

Applications that could utilize this new product line include signage to make specifi c brand colors, LCD backlights to increase display color ranges, and high color rendered white LEDs in a wide range of color temperatures. The new products are available in lamp-type or surface mounted LED packages.

“As the world becomes increasingly mindful of the need to conserve energy, LED use has grown tremendously,” said Dave Duncan, COO Evident Technologies. “Now we are bringing new colors to these effi cient light sources.”
