A team of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) researchers has designed a 'smart' device to harvest daylight and relay it to underground spaces, reducing the need to draw on traditional energy sources for lighting.
Linea Light Group presents an antibacterial light that protects everyday health and wellbeing in any setting
While EU cities have worked on improving urban lighting services, this has mostly focussed on efficiency, reducing costs and lowering emissions. Yet, it has failed to consider the effect urban lighting may have on citizens' health and wellbeing.
Living in a group has clear benefits. As a member of a societal group, one can share resources with the others, seek protection from predators, and forage in an efficient manner.
Let there be (ultraviolet) light. That is the indication provided by a study performed at Iowa State University (ISU) relating to the use of ultraviolet light(UV) to stop the spread of the virus that is responsible for causing the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS).
Provides in-person technical training for field engineers on servicing and preventative maintenance of ZEISS equipment
UniKLasers Limited, a leading manufacturer of high precision scientific laser instrumentation, has launched its new ultra-violet (UV) laser – The Duetto 349 – a single frequency DPSS CW device which emits at 349 nanometres (nm) with a 50 mW output – making it the world’s first laser to operate with single frequency at 349 nm.
If you watch the leaves of a plant long enough, you may see them shift and turn toward the sunlight through the day. It happens slowly, but surely.
The 2021 QEPrize is awarded for the creation and development of LED lighting, which forms the basis of all solid-state lighting technology. Isamu Akasaki, Shuji Nakamura, Nick Holonyak Jr, M. George Craford and Russell Dupuis are recognized not only for the global impact of LED and solid-state lighting but also for the tremendous contribution the technology has made, and will continue to make, to reducing energy consumption and addressing climate change.
With a powerful enough light, you can see things that people once thought would be impossible. Large-scale light source facilities generate that powerful light, and scientists use it to create more durable materials, build more efficient batteries and computers, and learn more about the natural world.
