Project2

PHABULOµS aims to set up a European pilot line for the manufacturing of free-form micro-optical components by UV replication technologies (wafer-scale, roll-to-plate R2P, and roll-to-roll R2R)with a clear roadmap for  high volume production at competitive cost.

Objective

PHABULOµS objective is to accelerate the validation of technologies & processes (with selected use cases), to validate the services of the pilot line (with pilot cases) and eventually establish a unique legal entity as one-stop shop.

Use cases

Micro Displays for Augmented Reality

MICROOLED

A new dimension to consumer’s experience by providing the world’s highest pixel density AMOLED microdisplays.

The technology provides brightness enhancement and control of angular light emission, e.g. in see-through optical systems for wearable Augmented Reality (AR).

VIRTUAL AND Augmented Reality

LIMBAK

Thin free-form optical lenses with improved image resolution and reduced volume and field of view for VR/AR headsets.

SOLID-STATE LIGHTING

ZUMTOBEL

LED downlight with asymmetric uniform light distribution.

The thin-form factor/cost-effective FMLA solution will replace the current bulky/expensive facetted reflectors.

AUTOMOTIVE FUNCTIONAL LIGHTING

HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA

HELLA

Headlights with uniform appearance in the on/off state, yielding a high beam and an asymmetric low beam with a homogenous light distribution and low stray light, low installation space and low weight.

TRANSPORTATION INTERIOR LIGHTING

SEINSENBACHER

Large-area direct-lit LED luminaires with improved luminance uniformity, thinner form factor and lower cost.

SWAROVSKI

Free-form microstructured foils/plates with gemstone appearance.

Hexagon Panel is an homage to the world-famous honeycomb design that has sparkled on spectacular facades all over the world.

Active Panel combines the luminous power of 200,000 crystal per square meter with a backlighting of special LEDs.
