Par-Force Releases Phosphor LED Grow Light Technology White Paper

To satisfy consumer demand for fresh, affordable produce and other horticultural products throughout the year, growers are increasingly turning to indoor growing operations. Growers are using indoor hydroponics and aquaponics systems that are more efficient in producing year around yields without the threat of droughts, diseases, or nutrient deficiencies from our depleted farm lands. Such indoor operations provide a grower the ability to more precisely control for temperature, humidity, water and lighting.

Mitsubishi Improves LED Color Rendering For More Natural Looking Light

The maturing of the LED lighting application market has not only seen LED manufacturers aggressively increasing LED luminosity, but also gradually placing more and more attention on the importance in color rendering performance for LED products. Mitsubishi has stated that in the past most sapphire wafers included yellow phosphor in order to create white light, but that the color rendering performance was lack luster. With the evolution of phosphor technology, sapphire wafers to create white light can now also contain green and red phosphor and the same effect happens when UV wafers are paired with red, blue, and green phosphor. This has a clear improvement on color rendering.
