Understand thermal characterization of high-power LEDs for reliable SSL

Die attach materials used in the assembly of LEDs directly influence device operating temperatures, and of course we know that heat is the enemy of reliable LED components and finished solid-state lighting (SSL) products. Higher thermally conductive materials, such as sintered nano-silver, allow an LED to operate at lower temperatures. This impact leads to higher […]


Quantum Dot Based White LEDs for General Illumination

Colloidal quantum dot based white LEDs can be integrated into commercial products meeting the stringent reliability requirements for general illumination and providing LED efficiency gains of 5% to 15% over commercial phosphor based LEDs at CCT’s ranging from 5000 K to 2700 K. Unlike earlier demonstrations, the QD material is applied in an on-chip configuration […]


IALD and LUCI Sign Friendship Agreement

On October 14, 2017, the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and LUCI (Lighting Urban Community International) signed a Friendship Agreement between the two organizations during the IALD Enlighten Americas conference in Denver. Victor Palacio, IALD President, and Mark Burton-Page, LUCI General Director, signed the agreement. The document highlights the common goals of the two associations and their recognition […]
