Custom Light Guide Technology

Why Global Lighting Technologies?

GLT’s unique molded light guides utilize the most advanced and efficient light extraction technology. In operation, a light guide from GLT utilizes a “transition” area that spreads the light, and then allows the micro optical features to extract light precisely at each point across the panel. GLT light guides are developed in a very thin package, and can be designed in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit many different custom light guide applications.

These SEM photos show some of the many patterns that can be customized to meet virtually any application.

How GLT’s Optical Light Extraction Features Work

Light extraction features can be designed in a controlled, progressive process, where iterations can be reduced and repeatability from mold cavity to mold cavity is exceptional. GLT can determine and provide the best optical features for your LED light guide application. Only GLT’s optical features offer high-precision control of all six of these variables:

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Depth
  • Population
  • Randomization
  • Orientation or Angle/Rotation
