LED Lighting – What Selection Criteria is Most Important?

Everywhere you look LED technology or Solid State Lighting (SSL) is becoming common place. Time and again we hear about how much money a business or homeowner will save in lower electricity bills by converting to SSL but is saving money really the primary motivation for selecting LED lighting? As it turns out there a many factors to consider when choosing a lighting solution and using less electricity, although important, is not always the most critical element in making the Read More...

Evolution of Light Emitting Diodes (LED)

Evolution of Light Emitting Diode (LED) Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology is impacting every facet of our daily lives. From opening our eyes in the morning as we turn off the digital light alarm clock to closing our eyes at night to the glow of street lights illuminating the road or parking lot. LED lighting is now the new standard in illumination. The electroluminescence phenomenon discovered by British experimenter H. J. Round in 1907, advanced into the first LED by Read More...

Shake Flashlight Technology

Shake Flashlights – The Original. With the development of rare earth magnets towards the end of the 20th century, generators capable of converting mechanical energy to electrical energy reached astounding efficiencies of 85% and higher. In addition, advancements in high energy capacitors and solid state Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) were simultaneously occurring.  In 1997, Applied Innovative Technologies, Inc. recognized how the combination of these technologies could be integrated into a portable lighting device that is self-charging, does not require batteries Read More...

Solar Research

The most reliable and biggest light source humankind has ever experienced is our sun but do we really know how large the sun and its corona really is? Scientist have calculated the sun’s diameter at 864,938 (1.392 million kilometers) but that is less than 20 percent of the sun’s corona which based on recent evidence extends nearly 5 million miles above the sun’s surface. Magnetosonic Waves Using magnetosonic waves scientist from NASA are able to measure the thickness of the sun’s corona Read More...
