Beyond Basic Hotel Lighting—Where Illumination Technology is Taking Us


NATIONAL REPORT—Light has been around as long as the human race. First came fire—primitive, serving a dual purpose of heating and illumination. Fire, as a technology, was around for thousands of years. Relatively recently, roughly a hundred or so years ago, incandescent light was invented. This light source remains in use today and is a relatively simple process—passing an electrical current through a resistor, which creates both light, and heat. In the last 60 or so years, newer technologies have appeared—fluorescent, low and high-pressure sodium, metal halide, compact florescent. While these are significantly more efficient light sources than fire or incandescent (as measured by their ability to convert energy primarily into light), they pale in comparison to the last 18 months of development of solid-state light sources, such as LED. Solid-state lighting at its core is a basic machine—a power-transformer converts high voltage alternative current to low voltage direct current and a solid-state semiconductor, typically an LED, becomes excited and creates light.
