Welcome to LIGHTimes!

The opportunities presented by the increasing rapid adoption of high brightness LEDs, in all their forms and applications, represents nothing short of a "digital revolution" for a previously "analog" world. LEDs are having a substantial disruptive effect on a number of established technologies, and where there is disruption, there is an intense need for information.

LIGHTimes Online is here to serve the information needs of the LED industry supply chain, as well as integrators and non-architectural application solution providers with technology, product and market news updates for these rapidly evolving devices. Our readership also includes LED packagers, technology enablers and service companies seeking the answers to how best to meet their customers' needs.

For architectural lighting and applications news of interest specifically to lighting designers, specifiers, and architectural lighting decision makers, along with luminaire designers, lighting system integrators and lighting subsystem developers, please visit our sister publication, Solid State Lighting Design.

Supposed to be a picture here... Cubic GaN Shows Potential for LEDs
... Anvil Semiconductors and the Cambridge Centre for GaN at the University of Cambridge report having grown cubic GaN on 3C-SiC (silicon carbide) wafers using MOCVD. Anvil produced the underlying 3C-SiC layers using the company's patented stress relief IP that enables growth of device quality silicon carbide on 100mm diameter silicon wafers. Anvil contends that the process can work with 150mm diameter wafers and possibly beyond without modification and is therefore suitable for industrial-scale applications. In a project funded by Innovate UK, the MOCVD growth trials at Cambridge resulted in single phase, cubic GaN. The layers, characterized by XRD, TEM,...

LEDs Taking Over the World... We’ve Just Scratched the Surface – Adoption, Science, Integrated controls
... The US Department of Energy recently held its annual Market Development Workshop in Detroit, Michigan, with a few key takeaways for anyone in attendance. We’ve just scratched the surface on adoption – When you’re immersed in the industry, it’s easy to understand the compelling case for LED lighting versus any of the incumbents. LEDs can offer a near perfect replication of the incandescent/halogen color temperature and color rendering, with nearly 50+-times the lifetime and a fraction of the energy...  Read the rest...(or permalink here)
