  • Publication number: 20220146074
    Abstract: A light source device includes: a light source having an upper surface including a light-emitting surface, the light source comprising a plurality of light-emitting parts arranged in a two-dimensional array; a lens located above and spaced apart from the light-emitting surface of the light source, wherein the lens comprises an optically functional part, and a flange part located along an outer periphery of the optically functional part; and a support part formed of a light-shielding material and configured to support at least the flange part of the lens. A surface area of a first surface of the optically functional part is greater than a surface area of a second surface of the optically functional part. The flange part defines at least one first recess in a surface located at a same side as the second surface.

  • Patent number: 11231149
    Abstract: A light-emitting device includes: a substrate; a light-emitting element disposed on the substrate; a light-transmissive member disposed on a light extraction surface of the light-emitting element; and a cover that covers the light-emitting element with a gap between the cover and the light-emitting element, the cover including: an upper portion that is transmissive to light coming from the light-emitting element, a sidewall extending along a peripheral edge of the upper portion and having an outer lateral surface on which a projected portion is formed, and a recess defined by the upper portion and the sidewall. The projected portion is formed of a material that is deformable due to a pressing force generated in the event of an engagement with a counterpart member.
