Luminus Devices Collects Ten More Patents - Now has 21 Patents Issued, with 120 Applications Pending

Luminus Devices, Inc., the developer and manufacturer of PhlatLight® (Photonic Lattice) LEDs that are used in display and lighting applications, today announced it has received its 21st United States patent for its PhlatLight technology. This rapidly growing patent portfolio highlights Luminus Devices’ technology leadership in the LED industry. And with 120 additional patents pending in the United States and foreign countries, Luminus will continue its leadership in solid state lighting innovation.

“Luminus Devices introduced the revolutionary concept of creating large format LED chips, and we have continued research and development in all aspects of PhlatLight LED technology, resulting in brightness and efficacy of PhlatLight LEDs that has doubled in the last two years,” said Alexei Erchak, co-founder and chief technology officer for Luminus Devices.  “Our R&D efforts support the evolution of a diverse range of products based on our patented PhlatLight technology allowing us to enter into a wider variety of new markets where high intensity illumination is needed.”

Luminus’ patent portfolio covers a wide range of patented technology including large area LED devices, high power wavelength converting LED devices, and LED packaging technology.  The continual addition of patents further demonstrates Luminus’ commitment to innovate and patent leading edge technologies.

Luminus Devices is recognized as the technology leader in the advancement of display and illumination applications. PhlatLight technology has enabled display applications that were previously out of reach for conventional light emitting diodes. PhlatLight LEDs are replacing mercury-arc lamps used in projection and CCFL used in LCD TVs.  In addition to replacing traditional light sources for consumer electronics, the company is also branching out into a wide range of applications in entertainment and stage lighting, architectural lighting, medical and dental, avionics, machine vision and many other lighting applications that require high brightness light sources.
