LED maker Luminus joins Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes LED solid-state light sources for illumination applications, has joined the Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance (NGLIA), an organization that partners with the US Department of Energy (DOE) to accelerate the adoption of solid-state lighting in general lighting applications. Luminus’ leadership will work closely with members on a diverse set of activities in support of core technology research, product development and manufacturing.

“NGLIA includes the world’s leader in solid-state lighting, adoption and design, and we look forward to working closely with member companies to increase research, development and manufacturing technologies and methods of environmentally conscious lighting solutions,” says Luminus’ president & CEO Keith T. S. Ward. “By working with member companies, NGLIA is achieving profound success in developing energy-efficient and cost-effective solid-state lighting solutions that will lower global electrical consumption,” he adds.

PhlatLight (Photonic Lattice) LEDs are used in lighting applications that require high brightness and efficiency, wide white color palette, high color rendering, and very long life. Indoor and outdoor general lighting applications include street lighting, entertainment, architecture, automotive, medical and dental, avionics, manufacturing and machine vision, ultraviolet (UV), as well as projection display and digital signage markets.

Currently, 16 private for-profit companies active in solid-state lighting research, development, infrastructure and manufacturing in the USA have membership of NGLIA, including: 3M, Acuity Brands Lighting, Applied Materials, CAO Group, Corning, Cree, Eastman Kodak Company, GE-Lumination, Light Prescriptions Innovators, LSI Industries, Luminus Devices, OSRAM Sylvania, Philips Solid-State Lighting Solutions, QuNano, Ruud Lighting and Universal Display Corp.
