  • Patent number: 10135031
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for providing working substrates for the deposition of various photonic and electronic devices, in particular for organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) used for lighting and displays, where these substrates incorporate structural elements that improve the performance of these devices. These elements include nanoscale and microscale relief (3D) patterns on one or both sides of the substrate that are beneficial in controlling light and electrical properties of these devices by, for example, improving light output efficiency and uniformity. The present disclosure describes batch and roll-to-roll (R2R) techniques that allow these performance enhancing substrates to be efficiently formed, and at a much lower cost than can be achieved using prior art. Although one particular application relates to OLED lighting, such substrates can be used to enhance the performance of other devices, including flexible displays, touch screens, energy harvesting cells, sensors, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20130048192
    Abstract: The sealing method is to firstly form a circuit layout with electrode contacts on a circuit board and flip-chip light emitting diodes (FCLEDs) are electrically connected to the electrode contacts by adhesive material. After the adhesive material is solidified, a plastic ring is attached to the circuit board to surround the LEDs and cycle dispensing is used to coat fluorescent-powder gel within plastic ring on the exposed sides of the LEDs and on the surface of the circuit board between neighboring LEDs. Then, vacuum de-aerating and baking is conducted and a light engine module is formed. In the present invention, the lateral light from the LEDs forms a light extension area where the coated fluorescent-powder gel there is activated and extended planar light is as such produced. The present invention is therefore able to increase lighting efficiency, light projection angle, light brightness, and uniformity.

  • Patent number: 8376013
    Abstract: A method and a system for producing a change in a medium disposed in an artificial container. The method places in a vicinity of the medium at least one of a plasmonics agent and an energy modulation agent. The method applies an initiation energy through the artificial container to the medium. The initiation energy interacts with the plasmonics agent or the energy modulation agent to directly or indirectly produce the change in the medium. The system includes an initiation energy source configured to apply an initiation energy to the medium to activate the plasmonics agent or the energy modulation agent.
