Light Quality is Still Paramount

Against the backdrop of the innovative, next generational smart lighting concepts, the subject of light quality took a leading role at LpS 2017. With all the developments in technologies and the subsequent arrival of new applications, lighting is racing ahead into its future, a future that is being conceptualised and realized simultaneously. Several speakers delivered a note of caution to the crowds. We can build this future for lighting, but we must not forget the spectrum of LEDs still requires considerable work. How can we create the optimal lighting solution if we are focused on the end results speed to be realized, not the quality of it and its value?

Massive Impact for Miniaturization

The integration of light within the world of computer technologies has been a leading trend in the light sector since the introduction of LED and OLED technologies. Experts shared their thoughts on new approaches to miniaturization of control electronics by high-frequency circuits, the adoption of OLED lighting and the potential of miniaturization in both the light source, the drivers and the electronics required to power them. The events content covered the central building blocks of lighting systems from the component or materials right the way through to the application, and it explored the changes, and challenges, being brought by the miniaturization revolution.

LpS Scientific Paper of the Year

The LED professional Scientific Award was awarded to the best scientific paper. The winner was Dr. Ekaterina Nannen from the NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum (NETZ) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In her paper, Ekaterina Nannen deals with alternative techniques for light generation

LpS 2017 can be considered as a huge success and will continue to grow to meet the needs of delegates, exhibitors and the lighting industry and research as a whole. This year highlighted the need for us to all come together, to share ideas and to support each other because the future of lighting, and its impact on the world, is bigger today than ever before.

The Future of Lighting needs You!
