The diffusing layer then cuts glare which results in light shaped in a rectangle rather than a cone, thus displaying more of the light on the street
(PRWEB UK) 2 May 2013
It has been reported in Space Daily that Xuan- Hao Lee and Ching Cherng Sun of the National Central University of Taiwan as well as Ivan Moreno from the University of Zacatecas in Mexico have joined forces to design a new kind of streetlight to reduce light pollution. The work in progress contains LEDs fitted with a lens and a diffusing layer. The lens shines light in parallel rays, while the housing reflects any spilled light toward the ground. The diffusing layer then cuts glare which results in light shaped in a rectangle rather than a cone, thus displaying more of the light on the street.
Providing a vast collection of LED tape lights and strip lights, the team at Simple Lighting have been heavily involved within the industry for a number of years. As such they are often approached by customers intrigued by the energy saving benefits of LEDs. Light emitting diodes can hold significant advantages for both domestic and commercial purposes. A representative reflects on the possible impact of the new streetlights.
“Whilst it is important to make sure areas are well lit at night, we also have a responsibility to reducing light pollution. We’ve already begun to notice different councils adopting LED street lights in order to save money and become more environmentally friendly but this latest project appears to take things one step further. It will be interesting to see how long this takes to come into effect and how much energy it could save.”
