Incoherent Light Sources
A bright future – LED assembly technology
14.11.2008 - Photonik international 2/2008 | [ deutsche Version lesen ]
The light yielded by LEDs is comparable in efficiency to that yielded by fluorescent tubes, but solid-state light sources such as LEDs have a lifespan that is significantly longer than incandescent lamps and fluorescent tubes. The motivation for the application of this technology is, therefore, high, and will contribute to new developments in the near future. Assembly technology, which we will discuss further in the following article, plays an important role in the development of LEDs.
