  • Patent number: 11152591
    Abstract: A sealing member (200) is a sheet-like member to seal a light-emitting unit of a light-emitting device. The sealing member (200) is cut into a shape including a corner (220) having a central angle ? that is larger than 180 degrees when the light-emitting unit of the light-emitting device is sealed. When the sealing member (200) is cut, irregularities occur in the thickness direction in a region (222: first region) having a predetermined width w from an edge of the corner (220). When the irregularities occur, sealability of the sealing member (200) is deteriorated. Here, when a curvature radius of the corner ((220)) is equal to or greater than the above-mentioned width w, occurrence of the above-mentioned irregularities is inhibited.

  • Publication number: 20200028118
    Abstract: The refractive index of a third region (430) (base material (200)) is closer to the refractive index of a first region (410) (adhesive layer (310)) than to the refractive index of a second region (420) (gap (320)). Put differently, the absolute value of a refractive index difference between a first medium (510) (adhesive layer (310)) and a third medium (530) (base material (200)) is smaller than the absolute value of a refractive index difference between a second medium (520) (gap (320)) and the third medium (530) (base material (200)). Thus, it is possible to inhibit light advancing from the first region (410) (adhesive layer (310)) side to the third region (430) (base material (200)) side from being reflected on a boundary (552) and to inhibit light advancing from the third region (430) (base material (200)) side to the second region (420) (gap (320)) side from passing through a boundary (554).
