LED T8 Tube News, Plus Limited Time Sale

This is a big week in environmental news, as we await today’s White House climate change report, and as we learn that LED lights will outnumber the fluorescent tubes to be installed this year. A survey of professional lighting installers shows that SSL technology will make up 49% of their planned projects in 2014 – edging out fluorescent at 46% and almost doubling the projections from 2013.

This is the first year LED tube installations will outnumber fluorescent linear lighting, and it means buildings will now be more efficiently illuminated, and fewer mercury-tainted tubes will enter the waste stream as fluorescent T8s reach the end of useful service – typically after only a few thousand hours.

The World’s Thinnest LED (PLUS Our Thinnest LED Recessed Light)

Time’s running out on our PR15 UltraThin LED Recessed Light sale, so shop online now with coupon code WAVES for $10 this low-profile, high-end downlight. This offer expires at midnight tonight.

Graphical representation of the layering and light transmission of the 2-D LED. From U of Washington.

In other ultra-thin LED news, scientists at the University of Washington reported last month that they have created effective LEDs that are only 3 atoms thick. This was achieved by compressing flat sheets of  tungsten diselenide – the lowest profile molecular semiconductor known.

Ten thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair, this LED may serve immediate applications in nano-computers and wireless communications rather than general LED lighting for the home or workplace. But Jason Ross, co-author of the paper covering this incredible development, explains “This is a huge leap of miniaturization of technology, and because it’s a semiconductor, you can do almost everything with it that is possible with existing, three-dimensional silicon technologies.” Furthermore, this LED also appears to react with polarized light in unexpected ways that no other materials can – leading UW’s team to pursue other applications.

Our team here at LED Waves is extremely excited to hear how this story develops; perhaps one day it will lead to an even smarter, thinner PR15 UltraThin LED Recessed Light!
