OSRAM Shines a Light on Solid-State LEDs

Ms. Michelle Huang, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, Danvers, MA

Co-sponsored by the New England Chapter of SPIE


Abstract:  Solid state lighting technology has been around for 40 years yet in the past three years we've witnessed staggering breakthroughs in many LEDs’ increased high brightness light output levels and efficacy. As a result, LEDs increasingly are being integrated in applications where reflectorized halogen lamps were used. In fact, we can expect LED technology to fit into a growing number of novel niche applications in the future. Yet despite the rapid advances, much more is needed for broader market acceptance. Lighting and system specifiers and architects are looking for "plug in" solutions to better integrate LEDs in their efforts. OSRAM Opto Semiconductors' Michele Huang can provide a perspective on how to resolve these concerns.


Biography:  Ms. Huang’s broad application knowledge of LEDs comes from her work and research at one of the world’s leaders in LED technology, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. Her key responsibilities at OSRAM include LED applications in automotive interior and exterior lighting with expanded functions in display backlighting, white illumination, architectural lighting and general signage. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the Southeastern University of China and a Master of Science degree in Lighting from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She began her career as an electrical engineer at the Beijing Building Design Institute of China State Construction Engineering Corporation before joining Siemens Factory Automation Engineering Co. in Beijing, China.
