3D Printing Speeds Up Optics Manufacturing MAKING MICRO-OPTICS IN ONE STEP. Whereas traditionally the manufacture of optical components was carried out through a laborious - and often inefficient - milling technique, modern 3D printing methods have boosted the speed and flexibility of the process. By adding layers of a cured resin until a shape is
SSL Expert Panel to Discuss Advanced Manufacturing of LED Lighting Luminaires The DOE SSL Expert Panel Sessions of September 2021, part of two series of meetings covering topics in LED materials and devices, lighting science, products, and manufacturing, were an excellent platform to discuss the latest in additive manufacturing for lighting systems design, manufacture, and
How Lighting Can Support Economic Recovery and the Goal of a Net Zero Economy The world is facing an unprecedented crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic and the immediate focus is rightly on saving lives and slowing down the spread of the virus.

Helios Mylos - A New Way to Harvest Energy from the Sun Recently, I stumbled upon a pretty interesting and highly promising solar-based technology concept, invented by a Dutch firm: Helios Mylos. The Helios Mylos team believes that the new approach to harvest mechanical or electrical energy from direct sunlight (and other sources) will
LED Elektro Trend Report 2020 Back in 2014, the first Dutch National Trend Report was published. Since, the market changed at a rapid pace. In the electrotechnical sector LED lighting is no longer the 'crown prince', but it became the mainstream lighting solution. Unfortunately, new challenges with LEDs are faced almost on a daily basis.
The LED professional Certificate of Appreciation: Celebrating 12 Years and 75 editions Outstanding Lighting Technology Information This year, in celebration of the 75th issue of LED professional Review magazine, 6 lighting professionals were honored for their significant contribution, longstanding support and influence on the LpR Magazine during the LPS TIL Award Ceremony in Lindau, Germany.
Review Hikari SQ: Kitchen Integration Luxury Combi-Camp Valley Folding Trailer It's a public secret that I am a great fan of Lightly Technologies in business life. Their ultra-flat yet smooth and powerful LED light panels offer great versatility for a variety of lighting applications and are an excellent replacement for non-performing, short-living OLED panels. After gathering
Living Light - A cross Pollination of Nature, Science and Design Living Light is an atmospheric lamp that harvests its energy from the plant living inside. The light is based on 'plant microbial energy': energy generated by bacteria in the soil and harvested by microbial fuel cells. It was developed by Ermi van Oers and
Hikari SQ by Lightly Tech: The Powerful LED Light Source with OLED Appearance During my past 15 years in the lighting industry, I've got the privilege to be deeply engaged in the developments from incandescent light sources to LED. Unfortunately, several factors hold those developments back, most notably heat development, glare, and critical form factor limitations. OLED technology, despite
Forget about WiFi: LiFi will be the next Form of Wireless Internet Light fidelity (short LiFi) is a technology for wireless communication between devices using light to transmit data and position. The term was first introduced by Harald Haas during a 2011 TEDGlobal talk in Edinburgh. In its present state, only LED lamps can be
