Index Matching Silicone for High Brightness LED Packaging

Although silicone technology has been around for over 5 decades, this unique material continues to find usage in new applications. Its various functionalities allow its usage as fuel resistant gaskets, inert implantable devices in the body, coatings for Atomic Oxygen protection in space, and for interocular lenses for cataract disease. This paper will examine various silicones as effective encapsulants and lenses for High Brightness LEDs (HB LEDs). Physical and optical characteristics will be tested to determine which materials may prove to be the best.
