Making Outdoor Lighting More Efficient, Safe, and Affordable With Open-Standard Control Networking Technology


By Echelon (Adesto) Modern commercial outdoor lighting systems are being asked to do more than ever before. In addition to fulfilling their primary purpose of casting light onto dark roadways, parking areas, and public spaces, outdoor lighting systems are increasingly evaluated for how well they reduce energy consumption, improve safety for both pedestrians and drivers, and serve as the founda... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: March 4


Photon glue Like a spring connecting two swings, light can act as photon glue that binds together the quantum mechanical properties of two vastly different materials and this effect could harness the most useful characteristics from each material for hybrid solar cells and high efficiency lighting, among other applications. To this end, researchers at the University of Michigan and Queens Coll... » read more
