Nano-Imprinted Thin Films create unique LED Backlighting for the full range of Electronics Equipment applications.

High Resolution patterns

Micro-Lenses  are Nano-Imprinted onto Thin, Flexible Translucent Substrates.

Nano-structured Light Control

Uniquely allows for sophisticated control of light distribution only to keys or buttons dramatically increasing efficiency and brightness.

Roll to Roll, High Efficiency Production

Provides Very Low Cost, High Quality and High Repeatability Lighting solutions.

Light Guides: How they work.

The Light Guides are designed for effective use of LED edge light sources.   Light from the LED sources is reflected down the length of Light Guide to the various viewing areas.  The Micro-Lens Arrays redirect light out of the film to the viewer only where it is needed (to each logo, image, key or button) by the lens layout design.   This new technology patterning allows light to be efficiently and uniformly directed where light is desired in a very low profile film.

Light Guide Benefits

  • Very efficient use of light only to areas to be illuminated.   Patterns of MicroLense areas designed by Customer software such as CAD or other standard design software.  
  • More Efficient use (and reduced numbers) of LED sources
  • Very Thin Form Factor.
  • Roll to Roll Film Manufacturing for Low Cost
  • Software Designed Patterns for Precise Light Control.
  • Die cut to your specification shape requirements.

Light guide films are designed using customer CAD or other software to determine the size, pattern and layout of the microlens arrays.  This input is combined with our special design software to create the Micro-Lens array that is imprinted onto the Light Guide.
