Common white light sources
In this Chapter we describe the features of common light sources. We first present the spectral features of the sun and discuss its colorimetric properties. Next, we summarize the properties of traditional light sources ...
Colorimetry for LED lighting
In this Chapter, we explain the basics of colorimetry and introduce the colorimetric tools useful for designing light sources.
How to design quality light sources with discrete color components
White light sources using discrete emitters require careful design and optimization. The first step of the design should be determining the intended use of the light source so that application specific requirements can be ...
Metrics for light source design
In this part of this brief, we summarize the metrics that need to be considered for designing light sources. We start with metrics on the shade of color and then continue with color rendering and photometry.
Light stimulus and human eye
In this Chapter, we summarize the structure of the human eye and introduce the sensitivity functions of various photoreceptors and present the visual regimes and corresponding eye sensitivity functions.
In this final Chapter, we present a future perspective for the light source design. We discuss the existing problems and briefly introduce new material systems and device architectures that can overcome the current issues.
On-Chip integration of functional hybrid materials and components in nanophotonics and optoelectronics
(John Wiley & Sons, 2011)
Incorporation of custom - designed nanomaterial into nanophotonic devices and components in optoelectronic systems enables the realization of optical functionalities favorably controlled with external optical and electrical ...
