22 February 2006 High power LEDs and the organization of light
Author Affiliations +
High-power Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) were introduced in the market in 1998 by Lumileds. High-power LEDs have unique properties, very different from conventional light sources, creating never before possible solutions available to lighting designers. In this paper we will give an update on these devices and discuss the main benefits of LEDs compared to more traditional light sources. We will show that the benefits of high-power LEDs also relate to the organization of light they emit. Comparisons of more and less organized light sources as well as applications for highpower LEDs will be discussed.
