Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands and the country's most populated city, is launching a new trial with LED lighting at intersections. Thanks to this remarkable lighting, it is aimed for cyclists to see the red light more easily and to prevent accidents.
The market demands for disinfection have climbed significantly this year with the outbreak of COVID-19, leading to greater attention to UVC LED. In addition to surface and air disinfection, water purification is one of the major focuses of UVC LED manufacturers and home appliance brands.
The ambitions of the lighting industry to be a major supplier of UVC products was given a boost today as 239 scientists declared that airborne transmission of the coronavirus is much more significant than previously thought. The scientists suggest that emphasis should move from surfaces to indoor air as the...
University of Michigan researchers have shown that by including the boron element in the InGaN layer in LEDs, it can reduce electron collisions and increase the light efficiency of LEDs. 72 percent of the world's boron reserves in Turkey, would be a new hope for the lighting industry?
Wang Hank started a discussion with the test results he published on Linkedin. According to his statement, he tested the LEDVANCE (OSRAM) brand LED floodlight at -14°C for 2 days and at 85°C for 2 days. He stated that the LEDs were damaged as a result of this test, and...
The biggest artificial sun in the world outshines everything. This system, consisting of 149 powerful lamps and 10,000 times stronger than sunlight, is called the sun on Earth. This light source can reach a temperature of 3,000 °C by focusing on a single point. So what does it do?
The Biomass Production Laboratory at McGill University, is doing research in urban agriculture. Recent innovations with LED as a plant energy source, has brought about this new area of research. Compared to conventional lighting techniques when growing tomatoes, an arrangement of red and blue lights has proven to increase growth, improve...
As most people know, here now is a critical respiratory contagion disease in China. What are the effects on importing business and supply chain? What about lighting fairs such as Light + Building, Hong Kong International Lighting Fair, China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair)?
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, the Chinese Central Government extended the new year holiday until February 3, 2020. Local governments also take measures against the Coronavirus to the extreme. Production at the factories was stopped until February 10, 2020, and this period can be extended.
By using LED lights, automated sensors, and an automated control system, researchers at Michigan State University created a long day lighting (LDL) system at Wing Acres Dairy and solved the technical difficulties that were faced by Michigan dairies, leading to less productivity.
The Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan, has developed a new In-Line Compact Thermal Analyzer Technology (ICTA), which reduces the testing time to 0.3 seconds, an improvement of the LED thermal testing time by more than 90%. It also offers a measurement speed of 12,000 LEDs per hour.
The Texas Eastern District federal court issued a permanent injunction against the sales of several TV and lighting products, including a Philips TV product, as well as light bulbs of Feit Electric, according to a stipulation made between Seoul and Fry’s.
According to recent research, LED light sources with a spectrum close to natural sunlight produced better visual comfort, more alertness, and happier moods in the morning and evening among the test participants, compared to those exposed to conventional spectrum LEDs.
Seoul Semiconductor, a leading global innovator of LED products and technology, has been awarded a 2019 LEDs Magazine Sapphire Award, presented annually at Strategies in Light by leading lighting industry publisher LEDs Magazine for its Acrich NanoDriver Series ultraminiature LED drivers.
The standard high-brightness LED merely converts about 45% of energy, while the rest 55% is given out as mere heat. Now, it is important to quickly remove heat from the LED in order to prevent overheating of the LEDs. This is known as thermal management that has been challenging the manufacturers...
Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. will be exhibiting luminance and color meters CS-150 and CS-160 at LEDucation 2019, March 12-13 2019. Additionally, Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. will have on display at LEDucation 2019 its cost-effective spectrometerbased illuminance meter CL-70F.
For the first time, an international research group has uncovered the core mechanism that limits indium (In) incorporation into indium gallium nitride ((In, Ga) N) thin films – the key material for blue light emitting diodes (LEDs).
Researchers from the University of Twente have discovered a unique numerical light transport tool that can help the lighting industry design more efficient white LEDs, as it provides a fast yet accurate determination of key transport parameters, and also introduces predictive power into the design process of white LEDs.
A team of researchers at the University of Edinburgh, UK, did a year long research to find out if Li-Fi could be detrimental to the energy-efficiency of LEDs used as lighting sources. The research has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Researchers of the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) have developed a new technology to facilitate the mass transfer process of micro LED manufacturing.
