BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- Pixelligent Technologies, manufacturer of PixClear and leading producer of advanced high index materials for demanding applications in the solid-state lighting, flat panel display, and optical components and films markets, announced today that it has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I grant by the Department of Energy (DOE). The nine-month, $150,000 program will enable Pixelligent to accelerate the development of its proprietary nanocrystal dispersions for use in OLED lighting. As part of this program, Pixelligent will partner with OLEDWorks LLC, a leading OLED lighting company.
The SBIR program, established by the U.S. Congress, supports scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of federal research funds. The goal of the program, titled Advanced Light Extraction Material for OLED Lighting, is to develop an internal light-extraction structure that will be fully compatible with OLED device manufacturing processes and operating conditions that can expedite the commercialization of white OLED lighting. "As we continue working with the world's leading electronics and next generation lighting companies, we are excited to partner with OLEDWorks, one of the leading American manufacturers of OLED lighting solutions", commented Craig Bandes, President & CEO of Pixelligent Technologies.
"We are honored to receive this highly competitive grant from the DOE that recognizes the significant value our advanced materials can provide in Solid State Lighting (SSL) applications", commented Dr. Gregory D. Cooper, CTO & Founder of Pixelligent Technologies. "We have been working with Pixelligent for some time and believe the combination of its best in class high-index materials with OLEDWorks' expertise in OLED device development and manufacturing will help accelerate the market introduction of OLED lighting solutions", commented Michael Boroson, CTO of OLEDWorks.
Since 2012, Pixelligent has received three SBIR grants from the Department of Energy, totaling $1.3 million in funds to expedite the development of its advanced materials for commercial use.

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, will draw upon their own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He will also discuss the implementation of microservices in data and applicat...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
