Philips Lumileds Recognised as 'Illumineer of the Year'
Philips Lumileds was awarded 'Illumineer of the Year' this week as part of the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards.
The award went to the team of Eric Senders, Bob Zona, Rene Helbing, Mushfeque Manzur, and Catherine Othick from Philips Lumileds for their work on Luxeon CoB (Chip-on-Board) LED with CrispWhite Technology.
Luxeon CoB with CrispWhite Technology is designed to deliver warm saturated colours while creating the natural crisp whiteness required of merchandise in retail shops. It benefits from a small Light Emitting Surface (LES) as well as low thermal resistance, according to the company.
"This is extraordinary validation of the tremendous work we have been doing here at Lumileds. I could not be more proud of our entire team. 2014 was a historically good year for Lumileds - and with all the exciting changes, advancements and innovations planned for 2015, I am pleased to say, we are just getting started!" Pierre-Yves Lesaicherre, CEO, Philips Lumileds.
"CrispWhite is a great example of how LED technology will take the lighting industry to new heights, delivering a feature set in SSL products that the industry could never achieve with incandescent, halogen, or ceramic-metal-halide (CMH) sources." said Maury Wright, editor in chief, LEDs Magazine and Illumination in Focus.
"CrispWhite really delivers the light quality that retailers have been seeking for some time," said Eric Senders, product line director, Philips Lumileds.
