Don't miss the upcoming webinar on the revolutionary microLED technology made accessible via EU-Project SMILE

Germany-based QubeDot, developer and producer of microLEDs and microLED-solutions, will be hosting an online seminar as part of the SMILE EU project. The webinar will be held on June 13th, 14:00-15:30 PM (CEST).

The revolutionary microLED platform SMILE has been developed as part of an EU-funded project that relied on a collaboration between several outstanding partners from Europe. SMILE stands for “Structured Micro Illumination Light Engine” and will enable an enormous variety of novel applications in the future. With full scalability in terms of pixel numbers, fast switching speed of freely programmable optical patterns, high optical power, multiple wavelengths, and the possibility of mass production, SMILE is the next generation of lighting technology. SMILE technology is addressing quickly increasing markets and applications such as AR glasses, photonic sensors, image projection, chip- based holographic microscopy and several more.
