Rich document C header Discomfort Glare Perception of Non-Uniform Light Sources in an Office Setting
LED based luminaires with different luminance patterns and recently, with increasingly non-uniform luminance patterns are becoming mainstream. This trend makes discomfort due to glare an important topic. Based on an office setting and the comparison of results from three different regions, L. M. Geerdinck, J. R. Van Gheluwe and M.C.J.M. Vissenberg from Philips Research have reviewed the currently used formulae to predict discomfort glare to ascertain if they are still valid.

Rich document High-End White Light Sources Fiber Optics Technology for Medical Applications
Often technologies that are too expensive for the mass market at the beginning are already adopted in medical applications. When reaching a certain level of maturity, costs usually become more reasonable and adaptations for the consumer market begins. Holger Laabs, Oliver Mehl and Henning Rehn from Osram GmbH present a light source technology and its prerequisites for fiber optics that could become one of these technologies.
Rich document Octet Stream Status of Micro- and Nanostructured 3D LED Technologies
Conventional LEDs are planar, two-dimensional (2D) devices that emit light from a thin material layer at or near their flat surface. The vast majority of LEDs are made of GaN and InGaN material requiring expensive substrate wafers made of sapphire, silicon carbide or gallium nitride. The 3D WireLED technology uses silicon wafers for wafer diameters of 8 inches or larger. On each wafer, millions of vertical microwires and microrods of GaN are grown, each with a diameter of less than one micron. Mr. Arno Grabher-Meyer and Mr. Siegfried Luger from LED professional, talked with the General Manager of Aledia, Mr. Giorgio Anania about the status of this innovative technology.
