April 11, 2016: Zurich-based company EXALOS, an advanced semiconductor light source solutions provider is making efforts to develop micro-light emitting diodes (LED) in an effort to provide possibilities for next generation projection display.
This newly developed technique is claiming to provide effective means of optimizing light sources for direct projection displays. It includes virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) as well. EXALOS is developing the method using technological alliance with Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne. It further applies ‘patent-pending’ methods of producing vertical emitters with high level of performance.
EXALOS is producing devices with emission in the short-wavelength region for blue-violet micro-LEDs. In addition, the company directs that the design can be easily transferred to other emission wavelengths in a way that RGB light emission designs could be developed in another possibility.
‘Micro-LEDs will be a critical factor for brightness and efficacy for next generation of display. As EXALOS is developing new methods for creating high performance micro-LEDs, they are also loaded with features for wide range of applications, particularly in AR and VR,’ said a senior executive with the organization. He further added that company’s growth equipment and growth techniques are unparalleled and the company is willing to seek out partners for bringing new display products to market.
The company has a brief history with its foundation year being in 2003. Currently, Zurich-based EXALOS is a privately-owned company that uses Superluminescent Light-Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) and External Cavity Tunable Lasers to design, develop, manufacture, and sell advanced light source solutions based.
Few prominent EXALOS product portfolio includes Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) engines, driver electronics, and balanced receivers. These products are extensively used in medical, industrial, navigation, optical sensing, metrology, military, imaging, and scientific applications.
