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

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

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
Here is the thing about last week’s Professional Lighting Designers Convention (PLDC) 2015 in Rome: If you missed it, that’s bad news for you. Why? Firstly, the conference created for the global lighting design market is biannual – which means you need to wait 2 years for the next event. Secondly, it has been so good I’d dare to say it was an unique experience. To give you at least a little comfort I have summarized some highlights here (you might want to listen to Stereo MC’s Song Connected whichRead More
Here is a little challenge for you: What makes 60 technical presentations plus 7 workshops plus a joint exhibition booth from Osram and EBV Elektronik? The right solution is an outstanding LED professional Symposium 2015 (LpS 2015)! The event organised by Luger Research which started on Tuesday, 22nd September and ends after today is Europe’s foremost LED & OLED lighting technology event. Among the exhibiting companies are the world’s top seven LED manufacturers; EBV joined Osram on one of the biggest and most crowded booths of the event. During theRead More
A new video from Osram Opto Semiconductors illustrates how LED technology is used in modern applications and how it is affecting our daily lives. The video is highly interesting for everyone from tech fans to lighting experts as it gives a very comprehensive overview of LED applications and provides an outlook on how the technology will be used in the future.  Modern lighting offers significant advantages compared to common light bulbs. Why is this important? Well, an average person interacts with over 140,000 LEDs per day. Innovative illumination and LED applications can profit from theRead More
