Backlight fluoreSHEET™

POSTED 06/03/2020

Backlights provide sharp contrast to outline a shape, edges or an opening. But applications with space constraints may dictate backlight utilization. MidOpt introduces the Backlight fluoreSHEET™ (BF590). When the Backlight fluoreSHEET™ is illuminated from the front with a blue LED light, it emits an orange fluorescence. A backlight effect can be created by using a MidOpt orange Bandpass Filter (BP590) to capture the orange emission and block the blue LED excitation, giving the appearance of a br
