LED utility

Share this on social media:

Photonics design automation software specialist RSoft Design Group has announced the release of its new LED utility.

RSoft’s LED utility can shorten processing time and save development cost by providing accurate computer-based simulation and design optimisation. The LED utility accurately simulates novel LED structures and all the materials involved. LEDs are widely used in a wide range of applications and there is increasing demand for optimised structures with higher extraction efficiency and improved colour uniformity.

The complexities of LED optical design arise from various factors including; multiple interfaces with widely differing sizes, the use of novel materials and structures, dispersion, surface roughness, the use of gratings to enhance extraction efficiency, and the incoherent nature of the output light. The LED Utility accounts for all these situations and performs all necessary pre- and post-processing to generate the desired results including extraction ratio and radiation patterns.
