Linda Kastilani, Dow Corning Corp.

High-brightness LEDs have found their way into applications such as signs and displays, cell phone flash modules, automotive lighting and general illumination. Some applications, however, such as solid-state lighting, and backlighting for flat panel LCD monitors and TVs, require higher-brightness LEDs that also run hotter and operate at higher wavelengths. This, in turn, places new demands on packaging materials. Because of the greater challenges placed on materials, silicones have become a material of choice for high-brightness LED packaging. Silicones deliver better electrical,...Read full article
