Solid state lighting (SSL) refers to lighting technology that utilizes semiconductors to produce light, as opposed to traditional incandescent bulbs which produce light through heating a filament. Free-form micro-optics are an essential component of SSL, which enhance the efficiency and performance of SSL devices.
Free-form micro-optics are microscale optical structures that manipulate light rays, which are key to controlling the direction and intensity of light emitted by Solid state lighting SSL devices. These free-form micro-optics can be designed and fabricated using various techniques, such as lithography, injection molding, or diamond turning, depending on the application and requirements of the specific SSL device.
This online workshop will showcase the potential of the PHABULOuS Pilot Line in the field of free-form micro-optics for SSL. The session will cover the design, fabrication, and applications of free-form micro-optics in SSL devices, including emerging trends and challenges in the field.
Attendees will benefit from the workshop by gaining a comprehensive understanding of the current developments and future directions of free-form micro-optics in SSL, and how the PHABULOuS Pilot Line can support the development of companies in the field. The workshop will be a platform for SSL experts, researchers, and industry leaders to exchange ideas, share insights, and explore potential collaborations in the field of free-form micro-optics for SSL.
