Xenon Technologies and Nanyang Technological University Make a Splash With the Flash
Small but Mighty Xenon Flash for Mobile Phones -- Great Shots in the Dark Soon to Be a Reality

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- A Singapore invention looks set to equip mobile phones with a built-in, small yet powerful xenon flash, allowing consumers to take great photos even in low-light conditions.

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have made a revolutionary capacitor that overcomes the limitations of current capacitors, which are needed to store enough energy to fire a powerful flash like those found on digital cameras but are too big to fit in slim mobile devices.

This invention by Associate Professor Lee Pooi See from NTU's School of Materials Science and Engineering, will be made a consumer reality in partnership with Xenon Technologies (XT), the world's largest xenon flash manufacturer.

Made from polymers layered together, the new capacitor is at least four times smaller than current electrolytic capacitors and is several times faster than current ceramic-based capacitors. The multi-layered polymer capacitor is also able to deliver the same electricity charge needed to power high-intensity xenon flash light matching those found in digital cameras.

Through the university's Nanyang Innovation and Enterprise Office, NTU and XT entered into a Collaboration Agreement to research and develop a Multilayer Polymer Capacitor for xenon flash imaging applications.

Mr. Jack Tuen, CEO of Xenon Technologies, said: "This project will yield a breakthrough solution for the digital imaging industry, which will be the world's smallest xenon flash. Our customers and consumers at large constantly demand for a proper xenon flash which can fit into increasingly smaller and beautiful form factor mobile devices. This is the answer to fulfil that need."

Prof Lee, whose researchers had worked on the invention for the past two and a half years, hopes that this collaboration with XT will accelerate the transfer of her innovation from research lab to industry.

"With XT's expertise in developing successful commercial products, we are confident that this collaboration will result in a disruptive innovation, not just in the area of flash technology, but also in the world of consumer electronics, as all computers and devices require the use of capacitors in one way or another," she said.

Currently, the polymer capacitor project is funded by Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF) Proof-of-Concept grant. The NTU-Xenon team is expected to develop a working commercial prototype by September 2013.

About Xenon Technologies

Xenon Technologies is the world's largest xenon lamp manufacturer. Xenon strobe flashes can now be found in almost all digital cameras ranging from compact cameras to digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs).

The company headquartered in Singapore has been pioneering the smallest and most innovative flash modules products over the past few years for the world's top Digital Camera and Mobile Phone manufacturers.
