A thorough reference that sheds light on the promising field of solid–state lighting

Solid–state lighting is a rapidly emerging field. Light Emitting Diodes are already used in traffic signals, signage/contour lighting, large area displays, and automotive applications. But its greatest future lies in the possibility of applying solid–state lamps to general lighting. Solid–state lighting promises to reduce energy consumption as much as fifty percent, cut down on carbon–dioxide emission, and even spur the development of a completely new lighting industry.

Giving this important emerging field the attention it deserves, Introduction to Solid–State Lighting comprehensively covers:

∗ The history of lighting

∗ The characterization of visible light

∗ Conventional light sources

∗ LED basics

∗ Extraction of light from high–brightness LEDs

∗ White LED

∗ Applications of solid–state lamps
