Last week, readers were most interested in the Innovation Award earned by SCHOTT’s opto-ceramic converters (Opto-Ceramic Converters Receive SCHOTT Innovation Award): “Opto-ceramic converters from SCHOTT are reportedly accelerating the adoption of laser phosphor-based digital projectors by enabling high-luminance light sources. The material and the respective development team from Mainz, Germany, and Penang, Malaysia, were recently awarded the SCHOTT Innovation Award 2018. SCHOTT pre-produces the ceramic phosphor converter material in Mainz and finishes the material at its Penang plant.
By 2020, one-third of all projectors will use laser diodes or LEDs. This so-called solid state lighting (SSL) enables higher brightness, a superior image quality, and high reliability in digital projectors. According to SCHOTT, the technology has the ability to take high-quality, cost-effective digital projection to the classroom, boardroom, home theater and cinema.
‘The new ceramic phosphor converters, which were awarded with the SCHOTT Innovation Award 2018, provide superior performance with an outstanding reliability that enables long-lasting laser light sources,’ said Frank Heinricht, Ph.D., chairman of the management board. ‘This means that there is no need to change lamp bulbs, which significantly lowers the total cost of ownership and energy costs.’”
