Scalable Structured Micro Illumination Light Engines

Project description

MicroLED arrays could be lighting the way to novel commercial applications in many fields

Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, have been around for more than half a century. Starting out in infrared communication devices, LEDs soon found use in indicator lights, displays, and even general lighting thanks to their compact size, low energy consumption, extended lifetimes and flexibility of use. In standard LED arrays, each pixel is a separate LED chip. MicroLED arrays can be fabricated with multiple individual pixels per LED chip, resulting in high pixel densities, light intensities and control within a small area. The EU-funded SMILE project is building on the vast microLED array technology to develop novel microLED platforms to be demonstrated in several important applications of high commercial relevance, from DNA chip fabrication to high-tech microscopy.
