  • LpS 2016 - Technologies and Innovations in 6 Key Lighting Applications

    August 23, 2016
    Ruairí O’Brien, Vice-President at the Federation of International Light Designers and presenter of the paper “High Quality Lighting Designs with SSL – Practical Examples and the New Role of Lighting Designers”, said, “Lightcentric” is my key word for the future and the future belongs to the lighting designer. In the future, entire buildings, objects and surfaces will give us the light and the darkness we require, historical buildings will light from within, ‘sources’ will all but disappear from view, stars will appear and the word ‘skyline’ will receive a new meaning and importance. This is the dawn of a new architecture, a LIGHT architecture not just human centric but LIGHTCENTRIC”. Ruairí will also take part in the Design meets Technology Forum, organized by the Italian Lighting Design organization APIL and will talk about “Who's afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue”: The importance of holistic thinking for designers and technologists.

    Philipp Ansorg is Researcher at AUDI and talks about fascinating LED and laser technology trends. “The LED technology enables control of every individual light-emitting diode in a synchronized lighting system. New luminous surfaces and flowing activations transform light from static to dynamic. The development of efficient lighting systems is an important component of the overarching trend of electro mobility. Therefore LED and laser based systems are the foundation of efficiency enhancements. Laser based lighting technology such as Digital Micromirror Devices enable ideal high definition light patterns for virtually every situation on the road. It is realized by means of a chip with hundreds of thousands of micromirrors that divide the light into tiny separately controlled pixels. The mentioned technology will be an important part for the communication of piloted driving vehicles and pedestrians. For instance, it is possible to indicate to pedestrians on the roads that they have been recognized and can cross the road safely”. Mr. Ansorg will talk about “Safety Concept for Future Laser Based Headlamp Systems” at the Alternative Light Sources Forum organized by the Photonics Cluster.

    Anja Dieleman, Scientist at Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture, summed up the major and highly effective impacts of LED technology on horticultural lighting. “LED lighting can contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of horticultural products, due to the high efficiency with which they convert electricity in light. However, the largest impact of LED lighting for greenhouse horticulture will be in the possibilities LEDs offer to provide the light colors the plant requires, depending on the developmental stage of the plant and the time of the day. In this way, we can steer pot plants to become more compact, flowers to form long shoots and tomatoes to produce tastier fruit. Our challenge is to find the proper dynamic lighting recipes for this”.

    Ferenc Szabo, Professor at the University of Pannonia: “In 2016, the world still has many different opinions about LEDs applied in artwork lighting. Enhanced color has become evident but the possible effects of light on materials are still being argued about. Besides the basic facts that come from physics we still need more ‘close to reality’ investigations. Thanks to the ongoing multidisciplinary research works on LED museum lighting, more and more information is gained on the effects of LED light on historical materials. These results will help us to preserve our cultural heritage”.

    Technologies are evolving fast from the light source to smart controls, networks and finally to intelligent lighting. It’s a huge potential of new forces driving the future. On the other hand, we can obtain the individual and specific directions within the key applications as the statements showed above. Carlos Lee, Secretary General at EPIC and organizer of a Horticulture Lighting workshop at the LpS 2016, summed it up with a general overview on Photonics technologies: “Photonics is a thrilling technology with applications found really everywhere. Products relying on photonics technology are found in photovoltaic, lighting, communication, defense, medical diagnostics and treatments, environmental monitoring, transport, and many more. Photonics is like electronics 40 years ago, it’s a key enabling pervasive technology, and we haven’t yet exploited the full potential”.

    The LpS 2016 will be opened with fascinating keynotes featuring Nobel Prize Laureat Prof. Shuji Nakamura. Another highlight will be the Scientific Award Ceremony, where the best paper will be honored, after which will be the official opening of the high-class exhibition with internationally significant companies, media partners, scientific partners and Start-Up innovators. Among the myriad of products and services there will also be a humanoid robot and an Audi R8 with laser headlights to see. Selected product launches will be presented to journalists and lighting experts at the LpS 2016 press conference. The international lighting congregation has the possibility to strengthen business contacts at three networking events: the Exhibition Opening, a Meet and Greet evening organized by Munich Re and the Get-Together Evening aboard a cruise ship on Lake Constance. Finally, the organizers would like to thank the main sponsors of the LpS 2016: UL, auer Lighting, Dow Corning, Munich Re, Topsil Global, Tridonic, Osram and Wago.
