Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for July 26, 2023. Over the past week-plus, our Mark Halper has followed the response to developments in the quest to fully commercialize Li-Fi communications technology. Initially, he reported on the launch of IEEE’s new 802.11bb standard, then followed up with more details on the spectrum it prescribes. Most recently, Halper received response to inquiries with Signify and Oledcomm on their response to the standard and their plans to back ITU standardized technology. Let’s just say the Li-Fi conversation is far from over.
Also in this issue:
- We compiled a section of “solid-state lighting in space” studies below — a compelling proving ground for lighting use cases under unique conditions.
- Fagerhult takes a hit to its financials in the design division but quarterly sales overall look strong.
- Architectural SSL covers what to expect from the upcoming IES Annual Conference keynote and plenary sessions.
I’ll also remind you that in late August the Lighting Research Center and SPIE will hold the 3D Printing for Lighting Conference, co-located with SPIE Optics + Photonics 2023. Peruse the program and register here. While we’re talking about conferences, we have also seen two new controls-related events launch for this year. Stay tuned for our take on that.
