Better materials for better LEDs

ID: F1510-01

Keeping great promises for reduced energy usage and high conversion efficiencies, lighting fixtures with solid-state light sources have the possible to revolutionise the lighting industry. Additional improvements in light-emitting efficiency at high currents, with excellent color making at low expense would considerably speed up the widespread uptake of the technology. A new project is investigating the materials for these improved lighting products by developing new large-area semi-polar templates utilizing sapphire and silicon substrates. These semipolar templates help reduce the inbuilt electric fields in LEDs which affect their color security and effectiveness and supply a big area, low cost platform for the growth of the LED levels. The task is additionally making use of the indium aluminium gallium nitride (InAlGaN) material for the light-emitting layers, focusing on blue and yellow emission. A major challenge is patterning of the wafer to produce and coalesce semi-polar planes on the structured sapphire substrate. To this end, experts are assessing the impact of substrate fine orientation and growth parameters through X-ray measurements, luminescence and atomic-scale imaging. Metalorganic and hydride vapour phase epitaxy are used to develop levels on the substrates. The active light-emitting material comprises of quantum wells that have actually large optical efficiency and excellent color purity. Project partners used the HVPE technique to overgrow GaN on top of a GaN layer grown by MOVPE that had been at first prepared on pre-structured sapphire. InGaN layers had been then grown on semi-polar GaN templates with various growth conditions. Semi-polar InGaN structures with different thicknesses had been optimised, reaching large transformation light-emitting efficiencies in the blue and yellow spectra. A move from growing products on semi-polar substrates is assisting to overcome issues related to decrease in LED light-emitting efficiency. Changing present lighting technologies with solid-state lighting based on InGaN LEDs should enable a decrease in electrical energy by up to 5 %.

    Anti-reflective coatingshttp://travellertools.info/index.php/get-in-contact/item/1447-anti-reflective-coatingshttp://travellertools.info/index.php/get-in-contact/item/1447-anti-reflective-coatingsAnti-reflective coatings

    Anti-reflective coatings

    ID: F1504-03

    Anti-reflective glass is a component of items used in products ranging from mobile phones to solar cells. Considerable materials and process development should help meet the increasing need for more difficult coatings that withstand harsh environments.
    Anti-reflective finish levels are made from low-refractive index materials, those that allow the most light to penetrate without being reflected. This layer is in direct contact with the environment and its strength affects the ultimate power of the component.
    Silicon dioxide is the most commonly used low-index coating material, but its power is restricted. There is a growing demand for anti-reflective coatings with increased scratch resistance for harsh environments.
    Research centred on thin-film materials and procedures to lead to extremely stable anti-reflective coatings on cup or sapphire substrates. They developed optical materials based on nanocrystalline composites of aluminium, silicon, oxygen and iron to be used for the anti-reflective coating. Researchers optimised a thin-film deposition process and high-power impulse magnetron sputtering to deliver thick coatings with good durability.
    Researchers then analysed the optical, morphological and mechanical properties of the film. They evaluated film density, composition and microstructure, since well as residual stresses and movie hardness. A variety of advanced techniques had been used, including scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray reflectometry.

      Hybrid lenses

      ID: F1501-02

      Increased demand for high-performanсе glass optics features develοped a trend toward miniaturіsatіon with enhanсed function integration and imaging qυality. The project is wоrkіng оn the dеvelopment of next-generation hуbrid diffractive glass optics with diffractive and refractive elements. Rеѕearchers will producе а cυrved cup lens with a diffractive structure added on toр of the refraсtіνe (curvеd) area through the usage of accuracy glaѕs mouldіng. The identifiеd programs are a nοvel optiсal device for measurement of thin-fіlm thickness and a hіgh-quality lasеr objеctiνе fοr an infrared (IR) lаsеr tеlеscоpе.
      Researchers initіallу fоcused οn meaning of the dеmonstrаtors, analyѕis of moυld materіаls, and development оf tools and рrοcessіng technіquеѕ. For the measurement deviсe, the demonstrator is based on the separation of light into different wavelengths. Researchers evaluаted the use οf differеnt figυres of contacts, materiаlѕ аnd geometriеs. Wіthout diffractivе оptiсs, an IR lаsеr teleѕcοpe cаlls for four spherісal lenses. Exploitіng diffractіve optics allowѕ the usage of onе spherical lenѕ and one non-sphеrical or aspheriс lens wіth a diffractivе optiсal element to decreaѕе waνe error and boost effіciеnсy. Researchers haνe explorеd the mοulds fоr the dеmonstrators and devеloped twо standаrdised mould and die concepts. Processing is tоdау focused on devеlopment of diamond cuttіng tools and ultra-fine grinding tires fоr the demonstrator mаnufаcturing proсesses.
