Jeff Tsao participates in “Energy Efficiency and the Rebound Effect” Workshop

June 27-28, 2011 [singlepic id=979 w=320 h=240 float=right] The rebound (or take-back) effect) is the term in energy economics used to describe the effectin which increases in energy efficiency do not necessarily lead to simple 1:1 decreases in energy consumption, but instead are “taken back” in the form of higher consumption of the goods and [...]

Four-color laser white illuminant demonstrating high color-rendering quality

July 4, 2011 [singlepic id=980 w=320 h=240 float=right]Solid-state lighting is currently based on light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and phosphors.  Solid-state lighting based on lasers would offer significant advantages including high potential efficiencies at high current densities. Light emitted from lasers, however, has a much narrower spectral linewidth than light emitted from LEDs or phosphors.  Therefore it [...]
