Lighting Design & Specification

Noah Goldstein Noah Goldstein, a research director at Navigant Research*, talks with Echalon about some drivers for LED lighting, the emergence of lighting as a service...

 

 

Science Flexible By taking advantage of novel design patterns, researchers from National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan have developed a highly flexible white light LED that uses cheap, readily accessible components. Potential uses include wearable displays and non-flat surfaces, such as curved and flexible television screens...

 

 

Lighting FailureThe adoption of LED lighting continues at a rapid pace. Although the extended life of LEDs is beneficial, it also presents a compatibility challenge with older technology controls, especially with outdoor photocontrols....

 

 

 

Technology NanowiresResearch from the University of Copenhagen shows that LEDs made from nanowires will use less energy and provide better light.

 

 

 

OLEDOrganic LEDs (OLEDs) are an interesting and promising new display technology. They provide a number of major technology enhancements for displays and televisions, such as high contrast ratio, wide viewing angle, and very fast response time.

Typical OLEDAlthough a relatively new technology, organic light-emitting diodes, OLEDs, are labelled today’s most promising display technology. As its name suggests, OLED is an advancement upon LED or light-emitting diode that allows for even thinner and brighter displays...

 

 

Tunable WhiteLED keeps evolving. Six or seven years ago no one thought that LED was bright enough or cost-effective enough for general purpose lighting. Then efficacies improved, colour got more consistent, costs came down, and nowspecifiers and end-users want LED first, everything else as a second option. LED has arrived and there's really no questioning it now.

 

Product RevelAcuity Brands, Inc. has launched a next-generation OLED product portfolio, including the award-winning Revel, Kindred, Trilia, and Canvis. The four luminaires provide distinctive design statements for corporate, hospitality, healthcare, and residential interior lighting applications.

 

 

LED LightsShowing off your modern lighting advancements makes a powerful statement to customers. You’ll be saving them money and energy,  and they’ll be loyal for it. 

 

 

LED's SpaceYou may soon be able to add “growing space vegetables” to the list of uses for LEDs. Researchers at the University of Guelph’s Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility (CERF) are looking at ways that LEDs can help grow plants on other planets, specifically the moon and Mars. The project, called InTICE (Innovative Technologies in Challenging Environments), also has applications right here in Canada for remote Northern regions where fresh food is scarce.
