(FR) DISPOSITIFS D'ÉCLAIRAGE ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Illumination devices and methods of making same are disclosed. In one embodiment, a display device includes a light modulating array and a light guide (803) configured to receive light into at least one edge of the light guide. The light guide can be characterized by a first refractive index. The display device can also include a light turning layer (801) disposed such that the light guide is at least partially between the turning layer and the array. The turning layer can comprise an inorganic material characterized by a second refractive index that is substantially the same as the first refractive index.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs d'éclairage et leurs procédés de fabrication. Dans un mode de réalisation, un dispositif d'affichage comprend un réseau de modulation de lumière et un guide lumineux (803) conçu pour recevoir de la lumière dans au moins un bord du guide lumineux. Le guide lumineux peut être caractérisé par un premier indice de réfraction. Le dispositif d'affichage peut également comprendre une couche de renvoi de lumière (801) disposée de façon que le guide lumineux est au moins partiellement situé entre la couche de renvoi et le réseau. La couche de renvoi peut comprendre un matériau inorganique caractérisé par un deuxième indice de réfraction qui est sensiblement identique au premier indice de réfraction.
