We're happy to interview GE, as part of our series of interviews with MicroLED Industry Association members. GE offers narrow band red and green phosphor technologies known as KSF and PFS, suitable for microLED color conversion.
Can you introduce your company and technology?
Rachel Cassidy, PhD, MBA: The General Electric Company (GE) is an American multinational company. For more than 125 years, GE has invented the future of industry. Today, GE is best known for its work in the Power, Renewable Energy, Aviation and Healthcare industries.
GE’s Licensing team provides access to GE’s patent portfolio and technical and intellectual resources. Licensees receive world-leading technology paired with advice and guidance to accelerate their technology development and achieve market differentiation.
The GE LED Phosphors team has world class chemistry and physics expertise as well characterization capabilities that have resulted in commercial successes in both lighting and LCD display technologies. Multimillion-dollar yearly revenue, multiple awards, hundreds of patents, over 20 licensees of our patents, along with various publications and invited conference presentations show that this team is on the cutting edge of luminescent material development and can advance from concept to invention to commercialization. Our narrow band red phosphor technology known as KSF (K2SiF6:Mn) can be found in over 60 billion LEDs as well as remote films for miniLED applications sold into the display industry. The great success of KSF phosphor in the display industry is due to the high color gamut and energy efficiency that has best in class reliability.
