During Strategies in Light, I will be presenting Obducat’s mass production solution for photonic crystals used in HB LEDs as well as the applications in which they are used today and in the future, says Marc Beck, Ph.D in Solid State Physics and Senior Application Engineer at Obducat.Subsequent to EU’s resolve in December 2008 to gradually replace today’s light bulbs, the market for LED lighting is expected to grow.

Other application areas are computers and home entertainment projectors, backlighting TVs, and LCD TVs. – The participants at the Strategies in Light conference include all major global LED producers, presenting Obducat with an excellent opportunity to exhibit its technology.
