LED technology company Seaborough starts Optical Characterization Service
General / Materials
Pieter Six (Hilversum, 1980) has been appointed as CEO of Seaborough. The company focused for a number of years on developing impactful and groundbreaking LED technologies. The company is now ready to bring these to the market. Six has a background in the LED industry and has held various positions including Chief Commercial Officer. This makes him the right person to take the next step with Seaborough.
Six, a descendant of the famous Amsterdam Mayor Jan Six (1618-1700), is well versed in the world of LED. Before joining Seaborough, he worked as Chief Commercial Officer for Ellipz Smart Solutions, a company that enables data communication via light. This is called LiFi, which stands for Light Fidelity.
Seaborough develops high-quality LED technologies. For example, the company has designed a LED fluorescent tube under the name OneTled, which works on 99.9% of all luminaires and ballasts. With this, Seaborough gives its competitors the edge.
Another innovative technology being worked on is EuroLED: a new way to design luminous materials at the nanoscale. This technology can be used to develop a new red-emitting material for warmer white LED light. This results in 15 to 20% higher efficiency, while at the same time maintaining high colour quality. In 2018, Seaborough’s EuroLED program was awarded a European Eurostars grant within the Horizon2020 framework in a consortium with research institutes Fraunhofer CAN, FGK and the German company MyBiotech.
Seaborough also conducts research into lighting techniques for medical and health purposes. Seaborough is currently developing a lighting technology aimed at photobiomodulation. This form of light and energy delivery leads to pain relief, faster healing and recovery, more energy and a stronger immune system. The lighting industry follows developments closely.
CEO Pieter Six will further shift the scope of the company towards market introductions, although at Seaborough Research & Development will always play a major role.
