Pixelligent's high index nanocomposite dispersions for the solid state lighting market significantly increase the lumen output of LED packages, dramatically improving overall energy efficiency, and increasing the lifetime of LED devices. "We look forward to leveraging all of the resources of the Engineering Research Center to help further refine and quantify all of the benefits of Pixelligent's revolutionary high index materials for the Smart Lighting industry," stated Serpil Gonen Williams, VP, Product Development of Pixelligent Technologies, who joined the ERC's Industrial Advisory Board.

"We are excited to have Pixelligent as a member of the ERC. Innovative materials like those being developed by Pixelligent are key to improving performance in solid state lighting. We look forward to working closely with Pixelligent on advanced lighting management materials," said Dr. Bob Karlicek, Director of the ERC.

The Smart Lighting ERC develops technologies that are a holistic integration of advanced light sources, sensors and control algorithms. These components create Smart Lighting Systems that See and Think©, that are able to sense the 3D fingerprint of the light field in a room without invading privacy, and automatically adjust the color, intensity and direction of the light, maximizing its quality. The center strives to create an innovation ecosystem that links three elements: developing transformative technologies, setting a commercialization path through industry engagement, and educating a diverse workforce with an entrepreneurial mindset.

"Working with the ERC will help us further accelerate Pixelligent's product development efforts and enable our customers to more quickly deliver the next generation of high efficiency LED devices to the market," said Craig Bandes, President and CEO of Pixelligent Technologies.
