The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is offering its popular, hands-on LED Lighting Institute—a 3-day seminar for industry professionals covering the latest in solid-state lighting (SSL). Discover the benefits of incorporating advances from these quickly evolving industries into architectural lighting. Learn to optimize lighting systems by understanding the unique characteristics of SSL technologies and the needs of different applications. Compare SSL system components and learn about operating characteristics, rated life, lumen output, spectral distribution, and other important specification factors.



At the LED Lighting Institute you will:

  • Learn about the latest advances in LED and OLED technologies
  • Learn about strengths and weaknesses of SSL products
  • Learn to read LED, driver, and controls datasheets and to specify SSL system components
  • Learn the testing methods and metrics used in characterizing the thermal, electrical, and optical properties of LEDs and LED systems
  • Experiment with LED lighting technology by building sample lighting fixtures
  • Explore the possibilities of 3-D printing technologies for luminaire integration using custom and modular parts
  • Learn characterizing methods for evaluating performance of 3-D printed parts and components
  • Learn how to match application requirements with available technologies
  • Learn about the latest LED research including white tunable systems, color rendering, flicker, and system reliability
  • Learn the pros, cons, capabilities, and limitations of connected lighting systems including PoE
  • Receive an LRC Continuing Education Certificate in LED Lighting
