Home > Press > Pixelligent Technologies Introduces PixClear™ Nanoadditives: Revolutionary Light Management for Display and Lighting Applications Provides One of the Highest Refractive Index Materials Available

Abstract:
Pixelligent Technologies, an innovator in manufacturing nanocrystal additives for the electronics and semiconductor markets, announces the launch of its PixClear™ Zirconia nanocrystals. When incorporated into existing products, the nanoadditives can dramatically increase light output and readability of modern touch screens and displays. PixClear™ also increases the light output of products for lighting applications such as HB LEDs and OLEDs. Prior to Pixelligent, nanocrystal dispersions suffered from aggregation and were cloudy, difficult to process, and unstable, which prevented their commercial adoption. But there is something radically new about Pixelligent's dispersions, they're perfectly clear. These clear dispersions allow Pixelligent to deliver precise control over the target applications' optical, chemical and mechanical properties enabling Pixelligent to deliver unparalleled light extraction, transparency, and scratch resistance.

Baltimore, MD | Posted on March 18th, 2013

"Pixelligent is at the forefront of developing nanotechnology innovations that will revolutionize light management in display and lighting applications," commented Craig Bandes, President and CEO of Pixelligent. "The launch of PixClear™ is a great example of our ability to identify a need in the industry and then create a high-quality and scalable solution that will dramatically impact the performance of numerous end-products."

Pixelligent's PixClear™ nanocrystal dispersions have been tailored to be compatible with a wide variety of monomers and polymers. Our patent-pending synthesis and surface modification technology produces high-quality dispersions that can be incorporated into many of the most widely used polymer systems. This enables highly transparent formulations with nanocrystal loadings in excess of 80% weight, while reaching a refractive index as high as 1.85, levels that are unmatched in the industry. Additionally, it provides great flexibility for index matching dissimilar materials and when using modern high-speed polymer film forming techniques.

PixClear™ Advantages:

- High refractive index
- Highly transparent at visible wavelengths
- Low haze coating even at high nanocrystal loading
- Improved scratch resistance and hardness
- Easily integrated into existing manufacturing processes

PixClear™ is available in two formulations to meet specific product performance and manufacturing requirements. PixClear™ can be ordered online at www.pixelligent.com.
