Rich document Method to Control Light Propagation in Waveguides
A team of Columbia Engineering researchers, led by Applied Physics Assistant Professor Nanfang Yu, has invented a method to control light propagating in confined pathways, or waveguides, with high efficiency by using nano-antennas. To demonstrate this technique, they built photonic integrated devices that not only had record-small footprints but were also able to maintain optimal performance over an unprecedented broad wavelength range.

Rich document ZORYA – Omnidirectional Retrofit Lenses from LEDiL
ZORYA is a unique LED optics design from LEDiL with around 340-degrees of light distribution. The whole lens is covered in small “spikes” that are basically individual optics in themselves. This innovative design – unlike anything seen before in LED optics – can harness all the light from any size LED and transform it into omnidirectional lighting that mimics a traditional light bulb beam pattern.

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".

Rich document audio/x-realaudio Professor Shuji Nakamura
PROF. NAKAMURA SAID: "For violet LEDs we reach about 50-100 Acm-2 but the laser diode uses 3-10 kAcm-2 which is about 1,000 times higher than blue LEDs. This leads to very tiny chips in combination with the same phosphors such as YAG types. The light output is about 1,000 times higher than conventional LEDs with the same chip-size".
