english language

The awareness of the toxic content of fluorescent tubes as well as the EU ban on incandescent light sources have drawn wide-scale public attention to the issue of lighting. Rapid advancements in Solid-State Lighting have revolutionised modern lighting, opening up new market opportunities. Further investigation is necessary into the effects of lighting on humans and their well-being, modern architecture, and also into undesirable impacts such as light pollution. The awarding of the Nobel Prize of Physics in 2014 for the invention of the blue LED confirms the current impact of this form of lighting.
