Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, announced today that Kaz Maruyama, global industry director for Dow Corning Lighting Solutions, will deliver a presentation at the 15th Edition of Strategies in Light in Santa Clara, Calif.
Titled “Materials Solutions for Maximizing LED Package Efficiency,” the presentation will detail how new high-performance optical silicones are increasing the efficiency of LED packaging design. Maruyama’s presentation is part of the conference’s Optics, Materials & Packaging Technology Track, and will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 in Grand Ballroom G & H of the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.
“LED packaging manufacturers are under increasingly intense pressure to develop differentiated high-end products in order to compete in high-margin segments, and only the highest performing materials can help them achieve this goal,” Maruyama said. “This is where silicone technologies truly shine. These materials provide an exceptional combination of high refractive index, thermal stability and mechanical toughness to enable breakthrough new LED designs from the module level through lamp and luminaire applications.”
Maruyama’s presentation will cover topics such as how encapsulant materials can boost LED efficiency, how materials for phosphor color conversion can enhance light quality, how silicones can improve light output stability and where silicones are helping manufacturers innovate new, leading-edge package housing designs. He will also discuss the market trends that are driving the shift to higher performance materials.
In addition to Maruyama’s presentation, Dow Corning will feature its line of high-performance LED packaging silicone products and moldable optical-grade silicone products at the Strategies in Light exhibit (Booth 315), as well as its complete portfolio of LED lamp and luminaire assembly solutions.
Strategies in Light is the world’s largest and longest-running conference and exhibition covering the LEDs and solid-state lighting sectors. It will be held from Feb. 25 – 27 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara Calif.
