DOE to Host Webinar for Facts on LED Street Lighting in Late October

  LED street lighting has been in the news a lot lately, in the wake of the American Medical Association (AMA) issuing community guidance that cited the potential for increased blue-wavelength light in the night sky resulting from the ongoing conversion of high-pressure sodium street lighting to LED. The applicability of that guidance, however, critically depends on the accuracy of a number of underlying assumptions and other relevant factors that, unfortunately, are not covered in the AMA document. On October 20, DOE will host a webinar to examine key issues re...

Smart Lighting Researcher to Discuss Digitized LED-based Illumination

Before the advent of LED, electric lighting was just that: an electrical signal that traveled through a wire to a lamp, where some of its energy was converted into light. But the fundamental electronic capabilities of LEDs are enabling new modes of lighting, simultaneously using that electric signal to encode the light for sending and gathering information.
