Title (EN) IRRADIATION APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE MODIFICATION A L'AIDE DE DEL
Abstract:
(EN) An irradiation apparatus (100) comprises a plurality of solid state radiation sources (104) to generate radiation that modifies a first material such as by- curing or creating alignment through polarization. The solid state radiation sources (104) can be disposed in an array pattern. Optical concentrators (120) , arranged in a corresponding array pattern, receive radiation from corresponding solid state radiation sources (104) . The concentrated radiation is received by a plurality of optical waveguides (130) , also arranged in a corresponding array pattern. Each optical waveguide includes a first end (132) to receive the radiation and a second end (133) to output the radiation. The radiation modifying apparatus (100) can be utilized for continuous substrate, sheet, piece part, spot curing, and/or 3D radiation-cure processes.
(FR) Appareil de modification par rayonnement qui comporte une pluralité de sources de rayonnement à semi-conducteur destinées à produire un rayonnement qui modifie une première matière, par exemple par cuisson ou par création d'un alignement par polarisation. Les sources de rayonnement à semi-conducteur peuvent être disposées selon un motif groupé. Des concentrateurs optiques, disposés selon un motif groupé correspondant, reçoivent le rayonnement émis par des sources de rayonnement à semi-conducteur correspondantes. Le rayonnement concentré est reçu par une pluralité de guides d'ondes optiques, également disposés selon un modèle groupé correspondant. Chaque guide d'ondes optique comporte une première extrémité destinée à recevoir le rayonnement et une seconde extrémité destinée à produire le rayonnement. Ledit appareil de modification par rayonnement peut être utilisé pour des processus de cuisson de substrats, de feuilles, de parties de pièces, de cuisson localisée et / ou de cuisson par rayonnement en 3D.
