Features about 'LED'

August/September 2015

Driven by design

Although OLED displays are now available commercially, the technology has not been as prevalent in other markets. Jessica Rowbury looks at the potential for using OLEDs in other applications

February 2015

Consistency-led lighting

Jessica Rowbury discusses the technologies used to test LEDs and how test equipment manufacturers are keeping up with the simultaneous demand for accuracy and lower cost

June 2013

Home improvements

Replacing incandescent bulbs in the home with vastly more efficient solid-state lighting could save billions of dollars in energy, but ensuring an LED device lights a room well is more complicated than it seems, as Greg Blackman discovers

March 2013

Illuminating data

Rob Coppinger finds that future home and office lighting could deliver gigabits of data every second

February 2013

Nature has the answer

Rob Coppinger finds that millions of years of insect evolution is aiding scientists in their quest for better LEDs

July 2011

Stephen Mounsey looks at the regulated world of LED lighting, and the photonic test and measurement technologies that enable LED developers in this rapidly growing market

June/July 2010

Shaking down and lighting up

Stephen Mounsey takes a look at the LED-based lighting industry and discovers that, when it comes to testing these light sources, legacy approaches are often insufficient

February/March 2009

Organic growth

OLEDs are tipped to be the next big thing in display technology. Greg Blackman assess the progress of these light emitting polymers

June/July 2008
