Lighting technology, from components and solid-state lighting systems, to human-centred, energy-efficient and intelligent lighting solutions. Lighting design combined with an optimal lighting experience.
Value for the Dutch high tech industry
Solid-state lighting is a type of lighting that uses LEDs and OLEDs as the source of illumination, rather than incandescent filaments or gas discharges. Solid-state lighting is very energy-efficient; twenty times more efficient than incandescent lighting in fact.
Solid-state lighting systems are more resistant to shock, vibration and wear than ‘traditional’ lighting solutions, which results in a longer service life. In addition, this lighting technology is digital; it is easy to dim and can be easily integrated into intelligent (building) systems. Finally, the possibilities for creating engineered lighting for special applications are almost endless: lighting for greenhouses that make plants grow better, lighting that influences sleep rhythms, lighting to create a certain atmosphere and, for example, light as a data communication technology.
