High CRI Lighting for Improved Ergonomics and Wellbeing

On October 2, 2017, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to a team studying the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms. The laureates discovered how light synchronizes the biological clock in various species. Due in part to work like this, artificial lighting has been increasingly recognized as a significant factor in our health...

Understanding Nanosuspension Technology

Nanosuspension Technology is an innovative field that has an important role to play in many applications, including construction, displays, lighting, and pharmaceuticals. Light Polymers’ proprietary lyotropic materials have amphiphilic properties – they have both hydrophobic and hydrophilic parts in the molecule. These amphiphilic materials can be used as efficient viscosity modifiers and create suspensions without...

Light Down-Conversion and its Role in LED Lighting

LED lighting is the most energy efficient solution for lighting your home or office today. Light down-conversion is a key phenomenon in today’s LED lighting technology – the process in which high-energy (shorter wavelength) light from a Light Emitting Diode (LED) is absorbed by a phosphorescent material and then re-emitted as lower energy (longer wavelength)...

A Second Revolution in LED Lighting – From Simple Illumination to Ergonomics

“We are in the midst of a lighting revolution — a second lighting revolution — that promises seismic shifts. The ongoing replacement of today’s lighting infrastructure with LED technology is opening the door for connected lighting systems,” – James Broderick at the Connected Lighting Systems Workshop. From electronic devices to the fixtures that light our...

Light Polymers Develops First Liquid-Crystal-Based Remote Phosphor Flexible Film for LED Lighting

August 3, 2015 South San Francisco, CA – Light Polymers is introducing the world’s first liquid-crystal-based remote phosphor flexible film.  In LED lighting, a remote phosphor film moves the blue-to-white-light converting phosphor material from the LED itself to the substrate that is located a short distance from the LEDs.  This has many benefits in terms...
