Dow acquires Lightscape Materials, adds phosphor to LED portfolio

PHILADELPHIA, US: Dow Electronic Materials, a unit of Dow Chemical Company, acquired Lightscape Materials Inc, a spin-off of SRI International. Major Lightscape Materials’ investors included Wisepower, a Korean company, and Silicon-Valley based SRI International. The investment enables Dow to add phosphor technology to the Company’s existing LED technologies portfolio.

In October 2011, Dow announced the formation of a new LED Technologies business segment to capture current and future demand for LEDs in the solid-state lighting market. In addition to the newly added phosphor materials, Dow’s portfolio includes metalorganic CVD precursors, which are used to make the active light-emitting areas in LEDs.

“The novel phosphor compositions developed by Lightscape Materials enable improved quality, reliability and output colour of LED light-based systems. We look forward to helping customers incorporate these advanced phosphors into their processes, while providing the local service, support and supply they have come to expect from Dow,” said Leo Linehan, Global General Manager, Growth Technologies business, Dow Electronic Materials.
