    Abstract

    A conformable device for wearable phototherapy applications is presented. The device consists of a 1 mm thick elastomeric membrane edge-lit by specially fabricated micro-sized LEDs. Nanoparticle based scattering films are utilized to extract light and a uniform emission of 15 μW/cm2 is reported over an area of 2 cm2.
