LED "tapes" from the researchers at University of Illinois
Jul 27, 2011 Research group from University of Illinois have recently reported an exciting new technique to generate what essentially looks like LED "tape". Large collections of very small blue indium gallium nitride LEDs can be fabricated on different surfaces including flexible plastic tapes using anisotropic etching techniques. Importantly, the authors demonstrate that such evenly distributed small LEDs can be very efficiently passively cooled simply by direct thermal transport through thin-film metallization used for electrical interconnect.

This research and future advances in this area of LED fabrication may lead to the development of more cost effective and widely used LED lighting solutions.
