Thin-Film Light Management System for Intelligent Large-Area LED Luminaires

The recent advances in Solid State Lighting have triggered the development of smart lighting solutions. However, the point-like nature of the LEDs imposes the use of either inefficient and/or bulky light scattering sheets or costly short-pitch LED arrays to achieve acceptable spatial luminance uniformity. As a new approach, an innovative thin form-factor light management (LM) system comprising a highly engineered combination of thin-film diffractive nano and refractive micro-optical elements is presented.

Schools Install LEDs to Assist in Sustainability Efforts

The US education sector continues to adopt LED lighting at increasing rates. High quality LED lighting emits a full - and sometimes tunable - light spectrum. It provides superior color rendering to enhance visual acuity within the classroom. It is said to improve behavior, reducing stress, anxiety, and reducing absenteeism when compared with other lighting technologies. The article discusses expectations, experiences and gives technical background information.

How Network Connected Lighting Is Driving Energy Efficiency, Productivity and Smart Buildings

Today, information technology (IT) and lighting are separate worlds. It is necessary to create a bridge between these worlds, not only from a technical standpoint but also from the perspective of understanding what is important to each industry. The article discusses how LEDs and PoE may pave this way with new power standards: LEDs far outperform the lumens output of older lighting technologies. Today, the PoE standard for LED is 30 W. An UPOE standard for 60 W is in the works, and an expansion called BP is in progress for up to 95 W.

Safety Concept for LED Street Lighting

The street and building lighting has profited greatly from the advantages of LED technology. While modern LED lamp posts have dielectric strengths of up to 8 kV, surge currents and voltages occurring in the grid can be significantly higher. A comprehensive power surge protection concept to prevent blackouts during power surges and to protect investments in LED lighting will be presented and discussed.

The Value of Dark Skies – How to Provide Environmentally Friendly Lighting

For many years no one worried about light pollution: on the contrary, the brighter the better. Then it became evident that darkness has also its value. Night skies are important in general, but especially for fragile ecosystems in parks and protected areas worldwide. The article presents and explains in more detail the latest findings and suggestions published in the "New IDA LED Lighting Practical Guide" and "New IDA Standards on Blue Light at Night". It will be discussed how to illuminate public spaces while avoiding excess light pollution.
