WHITE PAPER: "High Intensity UV LED Sources Enabled by Next Generation Substrates"

SEM images of Nanotherm dielectric compared with anodic layers on Al substrate Thermal management of high-power UV LEDs is substantially more demanding than for white LEDs. This arises due to their lower efficacy combined with the end use requirement for intense light sources. Critical to the thermal management of densely packed LED arrays is the substrate the semiconductors are mounted on. This whitepaper investigates how next generation Nanoceramic substrates can benefit the LED industry and presents a case study of a 75W UV LED module, just 2cm². Read more »

WHITE PAPER: "Accurate LED Source Modeling Using TracePro"

Ray trace example Modern optical modeling programs allow product design engineers to create, analyze, and optimize LED sources and LED optical systems as a virtual prototype prior to manufacturing the actual product. The precision of these virtual models depends on accurately representing the components that make up the model, including the light source. Read more »

Obtaining the Highest Candle Beam Power for Spotlights

Philips Lumileds Webinar Sponsor Philips Lumileds --- Lumen density in the LED source is very significant in final design. Obtaining Center Beam Candle Power is a goal in high quality applications including retail and architectural lighting. High Power LEDs are the perfect solution to creating high lumen intensity from a very small light emitting source. Creating a very high lumen per mm square enables the highest center beam candle power in a system. Where other COB's need ~35-35mm for high lumen packages, LUXEON S5000 can achieve 8000 lumens in a Light Emitting Surface of just 17mm. Creating great spotlights has never been easier. Read more »
