This talk will discuss solid-state, white light architectures based on luminescent organic coatings on fibers, capable of producing high CRI and high efficiency output, as well as new methods conducive to their cost-effective manufacture. For example, devices deposited on fibers covering complementary narrow emission bands can be used to mix colors with excellent control of the overall light quality (e.g. CRI > 90), while limiting Stokes loss. Approaches to depositing uniform coatings on non-planar substrates will be discussed, including guard flow-enhanced organic vapor jet printing which enables the ultra-rapid (e.g. >100 nm/s) deposition of emissive layers in the ambient air.
