Title
(EN) A LUMINESCENCE-BASED SENSOR ASSEMBLY
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DETECTION REPOSANT SUR LA LUMINESCENCE
Abstract
(EN)
A Luminescence-Based Sensor Assembly is described. The sensor assembly utilises the angular propagation of light into a substrate to distinguish between light originating from a luminescent source close to the substrate and that from a source further away from the substrate. Utilising such a technique, it is possible to employ direct illumination of the sources of luminescence.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de détection reposant sur la luminescence. Ledit dispositif utilise la propagation angulaire de la lumière dans un substrat pour réaliser une distinction entre la lumière provenant d'une source luminescente proche du substrat et celle provenant d'une source éloignée dudit substrat. Au moyen d'une telle technique, on peut utiliser un éclairage direct des sources de luminescence.
