“It’s huge.” “Bring comfortable shoes.”  “You’ll be amazed.”  "You have no idea."


My colleagues said all of these to me months before Light+Building 2016.  I believed my feet would hurt, as they often do at tradeshows.  And I believed that I would be amazed by some of the booths and exhibits because lighting is constantly evolving.

South of our corporate headquarters in nearby San Jose, I recently drove through a freeway underpass and noticed large blue circular shapes that looked like fluid tires along the walls.  And on top of these shapes were circular light fixtures.  While waiting at the stop light before exiting the underpass, I was overwhelmed (in a good way!) by the unexpected pop of color on this massive concrete structure.  And then to my surprise, I noticed some of the fixtures started to light up.

We often receive questions about optic materials such as silicone and their benefits.  We have an extensive list of ecosystem partners that we work with who are experts in providing responses and solutions to your various luminaire and manufacturing needs. 

Here’s the scoop on silicone to get you started:

The Bridgelux OLM™ Series is a highly innovative integrated subsystem that delivers world class performance and meaningful cost advantages while reducing time to market, eliminating significant research and development costs, and improving manufacturing lead times. OLM Series is designed to replace the prolific high pressure sodium (HPS) lamp, which has become the standard lighting source in outdoor lighting applications.

Leveraging Industry Standards

I often receive questions about how lighting affects health, specifically our Circadian rhythm.  In 2014, I took a class at the Lighting Resource Center (LRC) focusing on light and health.

Below are responses to some of the questions that I’m often asked on this topic.  If you have questions or comments about lighting, healthcare, or the Circadian rhythm, please leave a comment below.  And be sure to check out the resources at the LRC!


There’s been a lot of talk recently about the Internet of Things.  And there’s been a lot of talk about greater controllability of lights.  But what does it all mean for the LED industry?

For those of us approaching another birthday, it sometimes it feels like it’s getting increasingly difficult to identify items in a store from a distance, distinguish color differences among similar goods in a store, and read price labels or restaurant menu options.

New LED lighting has been installed on an advertising billboard in Mumbai, India. The luminaires, designed and manufactured by Leo Integrated Technologies Pvt Ltd, leverage the Bridgelux Vero(R) 29 LED Arrays to produce higher quality colors and brighter illumination than the existing metal halide.
