Lighting the way
Scianna, who has three patents and 30 more in the pipeline on the LED technology, said PolyBrite had a breakthrough two years ago in developing technology to manage heat generated by LED bulbs to produce white light.
It used nanotechnology to build a bulb lens from nano-sized silicon that lets through 40 percent more light than is possible with other materials, creating a bright white bulb. Carbon nanotechnology in the base of the bulbs made efficient heat management possible, Scianna said.
