Last week when we asked our question of the week on Facebook & Twitter we noticed there weren’t too many responses back. So, our VP of Research, Dr. David Bartine, gave his own thoughts:

Continuous improvement of LED’s efficiency means more input power is being converted to light and less waste heat needs to be removed. The availability of advanced thermally conductive materials, such as special polymers, enables design flexibility without sacrificing thermal performance, and allows lighting designers to come up with lighter, simpler, and more organic-looking lights.

Instead of the conventional finned aluminum heat sinks, designers can use both innovative and traditional household items as a heat sink, such as a picture frame, crown molding,  door or window trim, etc.

You can now turn just about anything into an LED light fixture!
