Light Polymers’ Presence at Zhuhai Summit Attracts Media Attention

Light Polymers, a nanochemistry innovator presented the most extensive setup at the Zhuhai Advanced Material summit on October 26th and October 27th. The major focus of Light Polymers’ research is to deliver leading edge lyotropic liquid crystal materials for flexible and foldable OLED displays. Their chemistry for OLED display is currently in its trial stages with a number of potential commercialization partners. Light Polymers’ advanced lyotropic materials also enable the world’s most efficient flexible remote phosphor film. In LED lighting, phosphors are used to down convert light from blue to longer wavelength white light. Using a remote phosphor film improves LED light output and down conversion efficiency by moving the ‘down conversion process’ away from the LED chip.

Light Polymers’ suite of breakthrough chemistry based on lyotropic liquid crystals was the star of the show, attracting attention from organizers and attending media. Light polymers’ CEO Marc McConnaughey was interviewed by the conference organizer, http://xincailiao.com/. McConnaughey also discussed Light Polymers’ plans for expansion, growth, and possible new offices near the Songshan Lake with interviewers from Nanfang Daily. The surrounding region is home to various smartphone manufacturers and is often referred to as the ‘Next Silicon Valley’, making it an enticing location for the future development of Light Polymers’ suite of OLED technology. In addition, Dongguan TV spoke with McConnaughey as well, adding to the already substantial media attention on Light Polymers’ technology. The media interest was generated because the surrounding region is home to various smartphone manufacturers and is often referred to as the ‘Next Silicon Valley’, making it an enticing location for technology companies and investors.  

Founded in January 2013, Light Polymers has conducted extensive application research and commercialization on the use of lyotropic liquid crystals in the fields of LED Lighting, LCD and OLED displays. The biomedical field may benefit from Light Polymers’ lyotropic liquid crystals being used to enable new cost-effective diagnostic technology and Light Polymers’ advanced materials can also be used in the building industry, in applications such as concrete admixtures and aerogels.
