University of Miami Professor Assists to Design a Smaller, Flexible LED

It’s reported that Jizhou Song, professor from the College of Engineering in University of Miami, has helped to utilize an array of LEDs 100 times smaller than conventional LEDs to develop a smaller, flexible LED light.

The new LED light has flexibility, maintains lower temperature and has an increased life-span over existing LEDs.

Under the research, the scientists focused on improving certain features of LED lights, like size, flexibility and temperature. And Song mainly participated in analyzing the thermal management and establishing an analytical model that reduces the temperature of the device.

According to Song, "The new model uses a silicon substrate, novel etching strategies, a unique layout and innovative thermal management method.The combination of these manufacturing techniques allows the new design to be much smaller and keep lower temperatures than current LEDs using the same electrical power."

The findings are published online by the "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."

In the long run, the researchers may stretch the device to be used on any surface, such as deformable display monitors and biomedical devices on the curvilinear surfaces of the human body.
