Special Phosphors

A huge market that is just being tapped is the use of miniaturised LEDs for generating broadband infrared radiation. Phosphor-converted infrared LEDs (pc-LEDs) are an ideal alternative for traditional IR radiation sources. A pc-LED consists of a blue/red emitting LED chip and a suitable broadband emitting NIR phosphor.

NIR LED-Technology

To ensure your illuminants keep pace with the changing lifestyle…

…we at Tailorlux rely on NIR LED technology.

Our IR phosphors help you to design small pc-LED chips that generate radiation between 700 – 1700 nm. The NIR phosphors optimised by us are ideally suited for the assembly of high power LEDs and are characterised by:

  • efficient conversion of the excitation light from the pump source
  • strong stability of broadband emission at temperatures up to 200°C
  • low spectral shift with temperature, voltage and lifetime
  • an emission half-width of more than 100 nm and even more than 250 nm in a converter mixture

However, do you need an IR emitter with a thin emission, e.g. to improve the photovoltaic efficiency of Si solar cells? No problem, we can also offer you such IR emitters.

NIR spectroscopy is part of our lifestyle.

Our lifestyle is changing fast, people want to analyse everything with their smartphone and there is no place for the traditional infrared lamps like a light bulb or halogen lamp. NIR spectroscopy is part of our lifestyle. We use the radiation when walking, unlocking smartphones, changing TV programmes, etc.

Disadvantages of NIR LEDs based on GaAs:

  • GaAs have narrow spectrum and many other drawbacks
  • Spectral shift with temperature, voltage, lifetime
  • Low efficiency
  • Sensitivity to humidity

Application of NIR LEDs:

  • Lighting module for diagnostics and medicine, cancer diagnostics
  • Analytical purposes, analysis such as agrotechnology
  • Verification of authenticity of products
  • Converter screens in silicone
  • Security tools


So that you can achieve maximum benefit from the digitized world…

we offer you individual solutions from over 20 LS.

In an increasingly digitalized world, people always have their technical devices in their pockets and want to derive maximum benefit from them – both privately and in a professional environment. Measurements and analyses should ideally be possible immediately in the field with a smartphone or a comparably compact device. However, time and again one comes up against the limits of technical possibilities, for example with the discovery that the conventional NIR light source cannot be brought into the smartphone. The solution is now sought in efficient NIR LS.

At Tailorlux, your search for a suitable solution is over. We have over 20 LS in our product portfolio, covering the range from 700 to 1700 nm. In this way, we offer you your individual solution.

Tailorlux is your partner

The world needs high power broadband infrared LEDs, since we cannot install a light bulb or halogen lamp everywhere. LED technology has already gone so far in the visible range. Now is the time for NIR LED technology. We are about to help you. Take advantage of our NIR phosphors now.

By the way, the idea of pc-LED with Cr3+ phosphors is a patented idea of Tailorlux.

Tailorlux sets new standards in digital supply chains and manages to get everywhere with its marking.
So that safety and traceability determine each fiber in a sustainable and transparent way.

At Tailorlux, we offer you a contemporary traceability solution that documents every step from raw material to finished product at the point of sale. Tailorlux technology thus offers you a:

Indestructible marking

Our marking is introduced at the beginning during ginning and is now inseparably bonded to the fibers. And it is completely non-toxic and chemically inert.

Perfected traceability

Our sensor technology is used to read the individual and tamper-proof marking.

Real-time monitoring

Each measurement/verification goes directly to the cloud.

Deep insight into your supply chain

Data is collected and processed by an AI.

Full transparency

Each fiber knows its origin, so that the genuineness of the products can be ensured and guaranteed.

Experience the advantages of the invisible fingerprint yourself.
