Rich document Greater Efficiency and New Light Colour for Spotlight LED Modules
Tridonic has given its sixth generation SLE LED modules a chip upgrade and at the same time expanded its colour palette. The ART, FOOD and FASHION colours, each optimised to a specific application, have now been joined by the TINGE light colour which makes warm tones appear even more vibrant. All the versions benefit from greater efficiency in high-output mode and are now available with a 17 mm light emission surface.
Rich document Tech-Talks BREGENZ - Dr. Rubén D. Costa, Group Leader, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg
Light quality and costs of LED systems remain an important topic even though big improvements have been made. New approaches are always welcome and stir up hope. It was exactly a year ago that LED professional published the article by Dr. Rubén D. Costa, Liebig Group Leader at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, about his amazing new „Bio-Hybrid“ white LED approach. At LpS 2016 his presentation on the latest research results and improvements also won him the LpS 2016 Scientific Award. Consequently, we just had to invite him to a Tech-Talk Bregenz! In the interview below he gives us some interesting background information about why he started the project, how it works and what he expects in the future. He also gives us his views on LEDs and lighting in general.
