Intematix is a company that primarily refines phosphor for LED applications. When I worked for the company in the ChromaLit division, the R&D group was very small, consisting of three physicists, one mechanical engineer, one manufacturing engineering, and a handful of technicians. The group's objective was to replace current lighting technology (incandescent and fluorescent) with LED lighting. The group was small enough to take on almost any customer's requests to net an income.
This company is a smaller, and thus offers fewer benefits to employees and provides less job security. The ChromaLit department is a little bit haphazard and does not have fantastic documentation.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Intematix (Fremont, CA) in March 2015.
Phone interview followed by a onsite interview. First person had not read my resume at all previous to the interview and read it while we sat in silence for 10 minutes. It was entirely clear that this was a interview for a research role in which you would grind out your day to day existence. They did not want anyone to "spend too much time on failure". They were mainly interested if you had experience in the EXACT down to materials and processing they wanted you to be doing. If you have experience doing the LED phosphors you may be in luck. Also do not be surprised to see random brightly colored powder vials just littering everyone's cubicles and offices. It's very scary from a safety point of view.
- They basically looked over my resume during the interview and quizzed me on it. 1 Answer
