CEA LETI: Micro-LEDs Future Applications and Current Challenges

Micro LEDs are gaining traction in the LED industry since it is a technology that industry experts view as capable of breaking LCDs low light efficiency, and achieve “real LED display” technology. Current LCD designs are very inefficient in light output, with only an estimated 10% light emission. Light emitted from the LED backlight module has to travel through polarization filters, TFT, liquid crystals, and color filters, about 90% of light is trapped in these layered structures.

InfiniLED Creates MicroLEDs with High Light Output Density

InfiniLED claims its latest MicroLEDs (µLEDs) have set up the highest recorded for a commercially available LED type device, with a light output density of more than 300 W/cm2. The device can produce up to 1mW of light from a single 20µm pixel at 405nm. The MicroLED combines the benefits of a laser and a LED to produce ultra-high light output. The MicroLED provides the wavelength flexibility, drive characteristics and simplicity of a LED as well as the power and collimated beam of a laser. The ability to produce such light intensity and ...
