That principle works for adhesives in just about every application, and it's critical in automotive and aerospace products.

I agree, this was a very informative and easy to understand article that discusses an important topic in LED Assembly production. The importance of adhesive selection if overlooked can result in a very poor product despite an otherwise solid design,  and understanding their interaction up front can save time and money in the long run.

"Careful adhesive selection during device design ensures that any incompatibilities between LEDs and adhesives never occur" sounds like excellent advice. Thanks for a great article.

Thanks for the educational posting. What we learn is that the whole process is quite complex and that it is vital to understand each of the materials involved, including their chemistry. 

So it is clear that one must work with a reliable supplier to make the correct choices, and then do an adequate amount of testing to assure that the selected materials will work even with the range of production variations. Because we know that there does exist a bit of variability.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
