When the lighting no longer bulb, lamp and other appearance presented in paper form changed shine, but for a variety of surfaces, what purpose do you bring? Perhaps you are wondering how the paper will be light, Texas Rohinni companies use 3D printing has launched a light-emitting diode (Light-Emitting Diode, LED) “light paper” (Lightpaper), can make you one of the bright eyes. This means that the 3D printing technology has been tripped people imagine, all kinds of impossible to achieve.
According to FastCoLabs reports, glossy paper is currently the world’s thinnest LED lights. Approach is to mix the ink and the micro-LED printed on the conductor layer, then the printed conductor layer sandwiched between two layers of additional material, and the seal. The miniature diode is only about the size of red blood cells, randomly dispersed in the conductive layer. When a current is passed through the micro diodes, will be the lights.
Similar light source sheet of paper, as well as better known organic light-emitting diode (Organic Light-Emitting Diode, OLED). OLED not contain heavy metals more environmentally friendly, foldable bending characteristics, but also make more extensive use, the disadvantage is the high cost; light OLED thinner than paper, and relatively low cost, the service life of 20 years, with considerable potential.
However, Rohinni now encountered problem is that how the conductor layer during printing, the LED uniformly distributed on the surface thereof. LED randomly scattered points of light can cause flicker, or a “starry sky” effect. The company’s marketing director Nick Smoot said that despite such a way that it has little effect on the majority of applications, but still have to make a uniform light-emitting diode necessary. The second edition of the improved light paper, will take several months to complete.
Rohinni glossy paper applications will be locked commercial and industrial markets, is expected to launch the first product in mid-2015 glossy paper. Smoot said, there are several companies using light paper technology, research and development and design-related products. Light paper technology invention, even if the impact of the LED industry to replace OLED, is still unknown. If the glossy paper and they can successfully overcome the technical problems in mass production, I believe the use of space will be considerable. – See more at: http://www.upshinelightingusa.com/world-thinnest-led-lights-3d-printing-light-paper.html#sthash.XGVassQO.dpuf
