Dr. Jy Bhardwaj - The Future of Lighting Applications

DR. JY BHARDWAJ SAID: "LEDs get integrated into the infrastructure, or let’s say, embedded. Instead of points of light there will be ceilings of light or walls of light. LEDs will be integrated into work surfaces, tables and all kinds of different things".

Dr. Jy Bhardwaj is Chief Technology Officer of Lumileds – the leading global light engine company that supplies high-quality LED components to the downstream segments of the lighting and consumer industries as well as LED and conventional lamps to the automotive industry.

Mr. Bhardwaj joined Philips Lumileds in May of 2010. Prior to joining, he served 7 years at JDSU where he held a number of senior management positions including CTO of Optical Communications after over 6 years of business unit leadership, including most recently, Vice-President and General Manager of Agile Optical Networks, which includes JDSU's market leading optical transport product lines. Mr. Bhardwaj joined JDSU through an acquisition of Scion Photonics; a silicon valley based optical chip start up, where he served as the CEO.

Prior to Scion, Mr. Bhardwaj served as CTO at STS, a Sumitomo Precision Products company, developing and manufacturing semiconductor capital equipment. During his tenure, STS saw over 5 years of strong growth culminating in an IPO on the AIM in London at the end of 2000.

Mr. Bhardwaj holds a Ph.D and B.Eng degrees from Liverpool University.
