Glowled Research Claims a Novel Lens for LED Lighting

The ground-breaking patented lens allows for led-emitted light to be projected in all directions, effectively converting a point source of light (the LED package) into an envelope of light – something the basic structure of medium to high power LEDs has prevented thus far.

Glowled Ltd , a Washington-based, United Kingdom research and design facility and manufacturer of LED products, has filed world-wide patents for conversion of led source light into a useable envelope of light to be employed in the replacement of incandescent and CFL bulbs.
Existing LED lighting has previously been based around side projection or front projection of light.

The project was initiated as a result of support by the Carbon Trust in the UK. The Carbon Trust’s Applied Research grants provide support for the development and commercialisation of technology with the potential to reduce UK carbon dioxide emissions. This project has been awarded support by demonstrating its potential to facilitate the progress of low carbon technology towards large scale deployment.

This lens technology is the first in the world and will enable lighting designers to light spaces with LEDs in fresh innovative ways. Thomas Bayat, the Founder of Glowled, said “the new lens provides excellent opportunities for LEDs to be used in direct replacement bulbs for many applications. The design of LED lighting products is currently constrained by directional lamp technology. This optical breakthrough will offer lamp designers more flexibility and scope to explore new applications”

Glowled is focused on future research and development of LED products and Thomas Bayat would welcome approaches from partners, including existing lens manufacturers and suppliers who are interested in licensing the technology for commercial and consumer applications.
