There is an ongoing revolution in architectural lighting and entertainment illumination driven by the availability of high power LEDs. LEDs are replacing less efficient and bulkier light sources, with relatively small emitters that generate less heat. To benefit from the efficiency of LED sources, optical collimators, diffusers, and other components are required to direct and shape the light. RPC Photonics’ refractive diffuser technology addresses the issue of distributing the often non-uniform output of LED’s to produce uniform, homogeneous illumination. Used with the RPC Photonics collimator optics, our diffusers enable light distribution in a controlled fashion in space, leading to highly efficient light use.
Here are some areas of illumination where our diffusers and collimators may be used:
- General lighting – Light fixtures for homes, office, street lighting, etc.
- Architectural illumination – Custom light distributions to produce pleasing aesthetic effects.
- Stage lighting – Both internal and external lighting applications. Our shaped light distributions are ideal for exterior applications where angularly specified illumination patterns are mandated by standards.
