Sajol Ghoshal, Director, OSL Business Unit of AMS-TAOS USA presented a talk titled: Sensor-Processing Systems: A New Wave Of Environmentally Aware Lighting 10:30 am – 12:00 pm in the JEC 3117.
The Sky Factory SkyMobile is a gallery on wheels that transforms interior spaces with illusions of nature using digital cinema virtual windows. The Sky Factory products help us visualize the ERC’s goals of combining illumination, communication and adaptive controls with video displays.
Professor Christian Wetzel (RPI) presented new work on higher efficiency lighting and power device technology at Semicon West in San Francisco: “Energy efficiency and green technology with wide bandgap GaN-based epitaxy”. Energy from currently used LED’s is lost to heat through the back of the LED and/or imparted to the phosphor needed to provide the color or shade of lighting desired. The ERC is working on developing technology that would lessen the dependency on phosphors, optimizing the wavelength of the light and improve the efficiency of the LED.
