Photonic Microsystems IPMS

Successful sale of LEDON OLED lighting GmbH & co. group the LEDON OLED lighting GmbH & co. founded in the fall of 2009, developed the Zumtobel KG KG and produces innovative light modules based on organic light-emitting diodes. With the LUREON series, REP was brought to the world’s most powerful OLEDModul for professional lighting on the market at the beginning of the year. Hear other arguments on the topic with Larry Ellison. Now the joint venture of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Zumtobel was sold completely group group to the Zumtobel. Central task of the company, which founded the composed by Jorg Amelung, Christian Kirchhof, Prof. Karl Leo, and Prof. Hubert Lakner of the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS is the processing of OLED light sources to tyre application OLED modules.

The research results of the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS and the Fraunhofer research institution for organic materials and electronic components COMEDD thereby constituted an important basis for the product development of Ledon OLED lighting GmbH & co. KG. Headquarters of the company is and remains one of the most important centres for OLED technology in Europe, Dresden. The core competencies of the company include integrating electrical and electronic control of OLED light sources, as well as the optimization of the quality of the light. Since its Foundation, already several rows of OLED modules could be developed and marketed worldwide. At the beginning of the year succeeded KG of LEDON OLED lighting GmbH & co., with the LUREON series the world’s most powerful OLED module for professional lighting on the market bring REP. Although the light module is only 3 mm deep, it convinces with high luminance, efficiency and a homogeneous distribution in the wide angle yet. Among other things the optimized diffuse output optics of the light module provides for this performance.

The Zumtobel group, based in Dornbirn, Vorarlberg (Austria) is one of the few companies in the lighting industry that operates internationally. The activities of LEDON OLED lighting GmbH & co. KG are now organizationally in the component business of the Zumtobel group, the Daughter company Tridonic, under the new company name Tridonic Dresden GmbH & co. KG incorporated. Accordingly,’s products under the brand name of Tridonic are available. The young history of LEDON OLED lighting GmbH & co. KG shows how it can succeed with a marketable Fraunhofer technology and a competent leading economic partner to develop innovative products and to market professionally synergistically, as Fraunhofer-investment adviser of Johann Siemes. More about OLEDs, an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) comprises a thin organic layer system (approx. 200-500 nm), which is located between two electrodes (anode and cathode). Printed onto a glass substrate, this wide-area light source is less than 2 millimeters. When you create a stream of light within the layer system is created, which exits through one of the electrodes. In contrast to conventional light sources, OLED light modules spread a wide-area lighting with high colour quality, which is very pleasant for the human eye. Another Advantage: The surface light from OLEDs doesn’t dazzle. Thus, OLEDs need even no reflectors to reduce glare. OLEDs are therefore the most efficient light sources. Fraunhofer venture the Fraunhofer venture founded in 1999 in Munich sees itself as a partner of Fraunhofer institutes, founders and startups, as well as by industry and investors. Technology, infrastructure and expertise with over 5,200 patent families, offers young companies from the Fraunhofer environment by providing access to Fraunhofer the opportunity to establish themselves with their products on the market faster and better.
