Title: LIGHT EMITTING DIODE ASSEMBLIES UTILIZING HEAT SHARING FROM LIGHT-CONDITIONING STRUCTURES FOR ENHANCED ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Abstract:
Disclosed herein are methods of operating one or more light-generating structures in combination with one or more light-conditioning structures for enhanced energy efficiency. Also disclosed are light-emitting assemblies comprising two or more of these structures operated using the disclosed method. These light-emitting assemblies exploit the thermal voltage defect and other thermal effects by transferring a fraction of the heat generated within one or more light-conditioning structures to one or more light-generating structures, and may optionally involve thermally isolating both the light-generating structures and light- conditioning structures from the ambient environment.
