Abstract:

The article discusses the trend towards microelectronics, particularly optoelectronic devices, such as photoelectrical function converters whereby a light ray is used as a control signal, coupling element, or converting link. Most promising type appears to be of the electroluminescent category, with advantages in long life and microminiature dimensions. The fundamental arrangement of an electroluminescent cell is outlined. Powder phosphors are compared for suitability. It concludes with a detailed discussion of elementary optrons, their characteristics and areas of application. Author
