The 2018 LpS TiL Award Winners: Celebrating the Complete Spectrum of Light

This year the LpS and TiL 2018 launched 7 new award categories spanning ground breaking scientific research in lighting all the way through to solutions, designs and innovative applications, celebrating the complete spectrum of light.

The organizers believe that all truly great work deserves recognition and the LpS TiL Awards give the community of exhibitors the chance to showcase their outstanding achievements. With over 40 applicants for the 2018 the LpS TiL Awards the competition was tough and the expert jury panel examined and investigated every application thoroughly before making their final decisions.

Over 300 people joined the evening last week for the official awards ceremony event and jury is proud to share the 2018 award winners...

LED professional Award 2018: Best Scientific Paper
Winner: Dr. Octavio L. PEREZ, Lighting and ED Clinician Wellness and Performance Improvement

The paper is based on clear definition of research question, hypothesis and objective of the research. Methodology of the screening study is described in detail and both subjective and objective parameters have been measured. Although ED lighting is a very special application, the paper gives interesting results.


The LpS Awards are given to cutting edge technologies with the strongest impact on lighting, applications and sustainability.

LpS Award 2018: Best Lighting Technology
Winner: NICHIA, Optisolis Ultra High CRI White LED

While the Optisolis Ultra High CRI White LED can be used in different applications its clear advantages are in museum applications where a daylight characteristic in respect to CRI and CCT is desired while the impact of high energy, low wavelength radiation must be avoided. This new product alters the misrepresentation that LEDs either do not render colors of artwork properly or damage the color pigments of precious paintings.

LpS Award 2018: Best Application Technology
Winner: LUMITRONIX, TOSHIBA MATERIALS, SEOUL SEMICONDUCTOR, Circadian Light Module & Controller

The consequent implementation of the TRI-R technology to mimic the diurnal changes of the sunlight spectrum brings illumination one step closer to the ultimate HCL. The compact, programmable PowerController V2 with its configurability that allows the control of the light using different input options adds additional value to the module.

LpS Award 2018: Best Sustainability Technology
Winner: GL OPTIC, Modern Lighting Audit

For modern buildings it is increasingly important to proof the realization in audits, either to receive certifications like the Green Building Certificate, LEED Certification, CEE or Title 24, just to name a few, or to proof the correct execution of the planning for the building contractor or building owner. GL OPTIC’s GL Modern Lighting Audit tool dramatically simplifies the necessary audit.


The TiL Awards are given to the most outstanding creative, collaborative and innovative lighting applications across all industries and the implementation of cutting edge technologies.

TiL Award 2018: Best Lighting Application
Winner: TRILUX, Bicult LED

TRILUX Bicult LED opens up new ways for flexible desktop and room-lighting in office applications. Integrating sophisticated light distribution, circadian lighting and connected lighting techniques it is pointing forward in the direction of future lighting.

TiL Award: Best Connected Lighting Solution
Winner: SILVAIR, Commissioning Tools

The system allows time efficient commissioning of Bluetooth mesh based lighting installations without the need for trained personnel. The user can focus on lighting specific configuration and doesn’t have to bother with network setup and configuration which is all done automatically.

TiL Award 2018: Best Non-Architectural LED Lighting
Winner: BILTON, Linear LED Strip Based on a High-Frequency Design

The combination of contactless power coupling and individual control of multiple LED groups allows to the use of this technology in different applications. The specifications suggest that the diverse application possibilities can trigger new creative solutions.
