Evolution of the Lighting Industry and LED Technology

Did you know LED stands for 'Light-emitting diode'?  Did you know light bulbs shine by incandescence (emitting light as a result of being heated), whereas LEDs shine by electroluminescence (luminescence produced electrically, especially by the application of voltage)?

Journey through the lighting industry's evolution and innovation with a technical presentation brought to you by Alessandro Bessi, a global professional within the lighting industry. 

Discussion Topics:
