New process prints electroluminescent layers directly onto three-dimensional objects

Researchers claim to be able to print electroluminescent panels directly onto the surface of 3D objects

Electroluminescent
(EL) panels are found in many electronics applications, particularly
as backlighting for LCD displays, keypads, watches, and other areas requiring uniform, low-power illumination. While relatively flexible, when EL panels made from
plastic are bent too sharply, fractures and a severely diminished
output usually result. As a result,
EL panels have generally been restricted to flat or slightly curved surfaces. However, researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and
Franz Binder GmbH & Co have now developed a new manufacturing process to print
EL panels directly onto the surface of almost any convex and concave shape. Even, apparently, onto spheres.
