Paper Abstract

The paper presents known for above 60 years phenomenon of intrinsic electroluminescence and its practical use in modern light sources called light emitting capacitors or electroluminescent lamps. Applying polymer thick film technology the authors have realized multilayer electroluminescent structures (Destriau cells). The influence of various constructional factors and exploitational conditions (supplying voltage, temperature) on luminance level of structures was determined. The test results achieved are presented in the diagrams and tables. A few examples of applications of electroluminescent lamps in emergency and warning systems are reported.
