  • Patent number: 9565772
    Abstract: The present subject matter provides for a multi-layer conductive trace. The trace can be formed by digital printing the individual layers and firing. The individual layers each impart functional characteristics to the conductive trace and each layer has components that can be adjusted to affect the performance characteristics of that particular layer without detrimentally affecting the performance characteristics of the remaining layers.

  • Publication number: 20160225966
    Abstract: The glass composites include glass frit, that when sintered produce a phosphor-containing layer, suitable for use in optical applications. The glass composites can include a crystallizing glass frit, such that phosphor crystals precipitate from the frit composite during sintering, or can include a non-crystallizing glass composition, such that phosphor is added to the frit composite before sintering. The sintering temperatures of the glass are relatively low so that fluorescence of the phosphors will not substantially degrade during sintering. The resulting phosphor-containing layer can be used in various optical applications including those for converting blue light into various color temperatures of white light.

  • Publication number: 20150299025
    Abstract: Methods of making multilayer glass structure are described. The method involves providing first and second glass sheets, and a first enamel composition layer and at least one separation layer between the first and second glass sheets, and firing the glass sheets to sinter the first enamel composition to the first glass sheet. The separation layer is a black pigment separation layer, a refractory material separation layer, or an oxidizer separation layer. The separation layer can improve separation of the first and second glass sheets after the firing.
