Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We describe the fabrication and characterization of matrix-addressable microlight-emitting diode (micro-LED) arrays based on InGaN, having elemental diameter of 20 m and array size of up to 128x96 elements. The introduction of a planar topology prior to contact metallization is an important processing step in advancing the performance of these devices. Planarization is achieved by chemical-mechanical polishing of the SiO2-deposited surface. In this way, the need for a single contact pad for each individual element can be eliminated. The resulting significant simplification in the addressing of the pixels opens the way to scaling to devices with large numbers of elements. Compared to conventional broad-area LEDs, the micrometer-scale devices exhibit superior light output and current handling capabilities, making them excellent candidates for a range of uses including high-efficiency and robust microdisplays.
