Lighting Academy Cover
Maybe it was just a coincidence that summer solstice occurred concurrently with the EBV Lighting Academy 2017. The conference was the place to be for experts and enthusiasts of lighting technology, who wanted to learn about the latest trends and developments in the industry. The EBV Lightspeed segment invited top-level speakers from renowned research institutes and established companies to share their expertise with the conference participants from June 20th to 21st in Berlin. But during the event it was only partially about natural light as the Sun produces every day,Read More

It’s a phenomenon that people take for granted every single day. We are surrounded by it in every situation and use it constantly to illuminate our apartments, when using our smartphones or driving car. Light is being used everywhere and has a tremendous impact on us, even though we do not realize it a lot. It can be harmful to us but can have very positive effects too. That’s why researchers spend a lot of effort to analyse the nature of light. From a physical point of view, light isRead More

Guest blog from Tamer Kira High-brightness (HB) light emitting diodes (LED) are making driving safer, reducing energy consumption and, as a side benefit, giving automotive designers more creative license in headlamp designs. LEDs can save 50-70% of the energy use that traditional lighting technologies consume, reducing carbon emissions in the process. They also last longer, boasting lifetimes of 50,000 hours or more. And, because they turn on and off faster than incandescent lamps, they’re ideal for applications like brake lights. From a design standpoint, though, working with HB LED technologiesRead More
horticulture lighting
At the IPM 2017 fair in Essen we learned about research activities to avoid chemical inhibitors in horticulture through an adapted choice of the right spectral colors. In general, we observed on the fair that LED technology has in the market of horticulture a high growth rate of up to 50 % for the last year: This is because it is the most energy efficient lighting technology and leads to much less heating, which is beneficial for the plants and the greenhouse regulation. Plants use light first of all toRead More

Things You Will Miss If You Don’t Attend LpS 2016

Only one week ahead is the LED professional Symposium + Expo 2016 (LpS) in Bregenz, Austria. The 6th international LpS event on solid-state lighting is already casting its shadows. EVB Elektronik will be present with its Lighting Segment “EBV Lightspeed” from September 20 – 22 in the premises of the world-famous Festspielhaus Bregenz, located directly on Lake Constance. Here we want to come up with some reasons, why Europe’s foremost lighting technology event is a must-attend event for industry experts, researchers and lighting designers. LpS 2016 will again cover aRead More
Automotive lighting is probably the oldest electricity powered application found on nearly any car. The job of the lights is to illuminate the road and signal other drivers that there is a car in front of them or braking. Wrong. New technologies have enabled lighting applications to perform new tasks and do a lot more than just emit light – in the automotive segment this equals tons of new opportunities to build innovative lighting solutions for front lighting, rear lighting, side lighting and interior lighting. Looking at the most common lightingRead More

When Thomas Alva Edison invented the lightbulb in 1879 he probably couldn’t imagine how important his innovation was. Light is everywhere. It’s the invention that drove the fast adoption and extension of the power grid and made electricity available for nearly everyone.    For more than a century artificial light remained a pretty simple application which we got used to so much that we tend to forget it’s all around us – even in applications like remote controls in which infrared light is used for communication. Since the introduction ofRead More
