TL;DR: In this article, the authors give a brief historical and forward-looking overview of conventional and SSL lighting technologies, and describe some of the simplest but most important lamp, chip, and materials design choices that will need to be made.
Abstract: The aim of this article is twofold. First, we give a brief historical and forward-looking overview of conventional and SSL lighting technologies. We focus on SSL technology based on inorganic light-emitting diodes (SSL-LEDs), rather than that based on organic light-emitting diodes (SSL-OLEDs), as SSL-LED technology is more advanced and more likely to be first to enter general illumination applications. Second, we describe some of the simplest but most important lamp, chip, and materials design choices that will need to be made. We especially focus on the constraints imposed on those design choices if SSL-LED technology is to fulfill its promise for general illumination.

TL;DR: In this article, a waveguide medium is configured such that the distance the radiation travels from the excitation source to the phosphor layer is at least one centimeter in length, and the configuration of the waveguide allows a greater flexibility in lighting system configurations.
Abstract: A lighting system for generating an illumination product comprises an excitation source, blue/UV LED, operable to generate excitation radiation and a remotely located phosphor, photo luminescent material. Excitation radiation is guided from the excitation source to the phosphor by a waveguiding medium, the waveguiding medium being configured such that the distance the radiation travels from the excitation source to the phosphor layer is at least one centimeter in length. The UV/blue excitation source provides excitation radiation to the phosphor(s), causing the phosphor(s) to photo luminesce, and it may also provide a component of the final illumination product. The configuration of the waveguide allows a greater flexibility in lighting system configurations, such as hanging lighting fixtures, desk lighting fixtures, floor standing lighting fixtures, desk lamps, track lighting, spot lighting, accent lighting, lighting panels, inspection lamps and endoscopes.

TL;DR: In this article, the power quality of high-power lighting networks based on LED and high-pressure sodium lamps was investigated using measurements, including harmonic currents in the frequency range up to 150 kHz for all technologies.
Abstract: High-pressure sodium lamps are currently the main lamps used in public lighting. However, the possibility of using high-power light emitting diode (LEDs) for street lighting is growing continuously due to their greater energy efficiency, robustness, long life and light control. The aim of this paper is to study the power quality of high-power lighting networks based on LED and high-pressure sodium lamps. Both electromagnetic and dimmable electronic ballasts, which can dim the lamp output smoothly and uniformly, have been used connected to high-pressure sodium lamps. High-pressure sodium lamps connected to electronic equipment have been tested with different arc power levels using dimming on a 230 V power supply. The study presented in this paper is completely based on measurements, including harmonic currents in the frequency range up to 150 kHz for all the technologies. The main results show a broadband spectrum in LED lamps which confirms other research in fluorescent lamps powered by high-frequency ball...
