Ceramic Laser Phosphor Converter

Brighter than the sun: Ceramic laser phosphor converters revolutionize digital projection

New ceramic laser phosphor converters from SCHOTT are accelerating the adoption of laser phosphor-based digital projectors by enabling high luminance light sources. SCHOTT now introduces two ceramic phosphor converters that support the development of brighter digital projection at Electronica China.

By 2020, one-third of all projectors will use laser diodes or LEDs instead of quickly aging conventional lamps. This so-called solid state lighting (SSL) enables higher brightness, a superior image quality, and very good reliability in digital projectors. Thus, SSL has the ability to take high-quality, cost-effective digital projection to the classroom, the board room, the home theater, and the cinema.

Far brighter than the sun
After years of research, SCHOTT experts have developed two inorganic ceramic phosphor materials that are extremely temperature-stable, heat-conductive, and energy-efficient.
The phosphor materials are green and yellow fluorescent ceramics that convert blue laser light into yellow light. The yellow light is then segmented by color filters to generate the primary colors (red, green, and blue) for digital projectors.
By offering both green and yellow ceramic converters, SCHOTT is addressing the needs of most digital projectors using DLP (Digital Light Processing), LCD (Liquid-Crystal Display), or LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technologies.
The new ceramic phosphor converters provide superior performance with an outstanding reliability that enables long-lasting laser light sources. This means that there is no need to change lamp bulbs, which significantly lowers the total cost of ownership and energy costs.

 “Made in Germany,” processed in Malaysia
SCHOTT pre-produces the ceramic phosphor converter material in Germany and finishes the material at its Penang plant in Malaysia. This value chain connects the outstanding production excellence of “German Engineering” with highly competent processing expertise, and short distances to markets like Japan, China, and Taiwan where the newest digital projectors are developed and produced.

Anti-reflective glass for displays

CONTURAN® is used whenever protection of precious displays in combination with minimized undesirable reflection is needed.

It is an anti-reflective glass with an optical interference coating on either one or both sides. As a result, this coating design prevents optical reflections from sunlight or artificial light being caused by the glass surface.

CONTURAN® can be used for different applications, including indicator board covers, railroad destination indicators, anti-reflective filters for technical displays, and many more. It can basically be put to use anywhere irritating reflections occur.

CONTURAN® DARO is perfect for high-value touch applications using glass top surfaces.

SCHOTT offers a coating that combines durable anti-reflective and oleophobic characteristics - a breakthrough for any touch application.

Anti-reflective coatings significantly enhance the contrast of today’s high-resolution displays, however, they still struggle with the issue of fingerprint visibility on the surface of anti-reflective glasses when used in touch applications. Thus, the market demands a super-tough, super-durable coating that reduces fingerprints together with an anti-reflective coating for quite some time, which is being offered on SCHOTT’s proven material CONTURAN® in the form of CONTURAN® DARO.

FLEXINITY: Structured Glass Breakthrough to Enable Smaller Electronics
SCHOTT is introducing a new, innovative portfolio of structured glass substrates that offers highly accurate and versatile features: FLEXINITY
™. Structured thin or ultra-thin glass wafers are used as a substrate for sensors, batteries, and diagnostic technology. The breakthrough will enable new applications and further miniaturization of electronics through thinner glass wafers and structures that are more precise. The technology offers the lowest structuring radius of just 150 micrometers (μm) and a feature size tolerance lower than ± 25 μm.

Meeting tomorrow’s demands – today
An increasing trend toward miniaturization in IC packaging, biochips, sensors, micro-batteries, and diagnostic technology has pushed demand for high-precision structured glass wafers, even as technology to create them has reached its limits. This has made it difficult to shrink wafers
any further, and limited the pace of innovation. SCHOTT’s new FLEXINITY
™ structuring portfolio offers complete freedom of design on glass wafers and thin glass. With FLEXINITY
, any shape is possible, and the process allows extremely tight tolerances and structures. Structured wafers are available made of glass types from SCHOTT’s unique down-draw glass portfolio, or plano-plano-processed BOROFLOAT 33® borosilicate glass.

Various glass types and thicknesses: freedom of choice
SCHOTT’s structured glass wafers are available in 4-inch to 12-inch wafers, in thinness ranging from 0.1 to 3.0 mm. The smallest structuring radius is set to 150
m and the feature size tolerance is lower than ± 25
μm. Customers can choose from several different glass types, such as borosilicate glass (MEMpax®, D 263® family, BOROFLOAT 33®) and alkali-free glass (AF 32® eco). The breakthrough technology gives manufacturers in different industries the ability to meet the challenging demands of the future, starting today. SCHOTT has already created sampling capabilities; mass production will be ready 2019.

The switch from glass to mirror

When the space behind the glass is dark, SCHOTT MIRONA® glass is an elegant mirror. Light transforms it into a transparent window – a surprising phenomenon that enables sophisticated staging of spaces and objects. It's an amazing effect, and unlike switchable glass products, this effect results solely by the coatings of MIRONA®glass. The brightness behind the glass determines if MIRONA® is a mirror or a transparent window.

Areas of applications
  • aesthetic options for interior design
  • silver mirror with advanced functionality
  • hidden TV in exclusive and premium environments with MIRONA® (Standard)
  • MIRONA® Beamsplitter with reflective and anti-reflective coating as excellent product for teleprompter (no disturbing double images)
  • MIRONA® High Reflective for maximum reflection(55%)
  • MIRONA® High Reflective Grey with reduced transmission and optimized “disappearing effect“
