BRECKSVILLE, Ohio, April 29, 2008 –- Global Lighting Technologies Inc., has introduced what it said is the thinnest LED-based, high-brightness backlights on the market today. The MicroLens is a .4 mm thick and is the slimmest BLU (backlit unit) available for backlighting in consumer electronic products.GLT ultra-thin backlight.jpg

Global Lighting Technologies said its light extraction technology and improved manufacturing processes are producing light guide packages that are ideal for the increasing demand for smaller, slimmer sized products (such as mobile phones and laptops) without sacrificing performance.

The result is Global Lighting Technologies’ MicroLens light guide BLUs that offer the thinnest electro-luminescent backlighting, and have all the advantages of today’s advanced LEDs. The MicroLens also provides substantial power savings because fewer LEDs are needed, due to the MicroLens’ ultrabright performance.

Global Lighting Technologies will display the new ultra-slim BLU at the 2008 SID (Society for Information Display) trade show in Los Angeles in May.

The forming of a clear silhouette of an object by placing a light source behind it. Used in machine vision when surface features of an object are not important.
Refers to a display or screen that is illuminated from behind; the light is transmitted as opposed to reflected.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
