Welcome to the Website of the eboLED project. "eboLED" is an abbreviation for
"Enhancement of Beam shaping Optical elements for LED hazard and security lighting".
The project is embedded in the research process of the City University of Applied Sciences in Bremen. On this website the project, its targets, results and partners are presented.
The luminous intenstity distribution of each and every LED is different. Thus, conventional secondary optics have to be designed for one special LED type. In the eboSHAPE subproject, the design and development of an LED independent secondary optic is targeted.
The target of this subproject is the measurement of the topography and shape of molded optics and their mold inserts. Therefore a non-destructive, non-touching measurement technique is developed and evaluated.
Since secondary optics for LEDs are only tested in combination, the source of errors and deviations form the expected liminous intensity distribution can't be found. Therefore, this subprojects targets on a component-level test for the secondary optics.
Invitation as Keynote Speaker at the Special Interest Group Meeting: Structured & Freeform Surfaces
10th October, 2018
Our team member Tobias Binkele has been invited as a keynote speaker for the Special Interest Group Meeting: Structured & Freeform Surfaces of the European Society for precision egnineering and nanotechnology (euspen). The meeting will be held from the 27th til 29th November 2018 in Paris, France.
Acceptance for cooperated paper at SPIE - Photonics West
3rd October, 2018
At the SPIE - Optifab conference in 2017, our team got in contact with a group of scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Lovermore, California. The research topic of this team is the additive manufaturing of Gradient Index (GRIN) lenses. Our team performed measurements of these samples using Experimental Ray Tracing to show the inner structure and local power. The results of these measurements will be shown in a cooperated paper and a presentation at the SPIE - PHotonics West 2019 in San Francisco, California.
Rapid fire presentation at OSA - Frontiers in Optics
19th September, 2018
At the OSA - Frontiers in Optics, a new type of presentations was introduced to our team. Our team member Tobias Binkele was invited to present his work as a poster, as well as in a rapid fire presentation of about 3 minutes. In the beginning of the poster session, the rapid fire presentation was given to show the basic idea and significant results of the presented work.
Poster presentation on the OSA - Imaging and Applied Optics
27th June, 2018
Our Team member Tobias Binkele was invited to present his work an the OSA - Imaging and Applied congress in Orlando, Florida. His presentation was in the type of a poster, which attracted a lot of interest and led to promising discussions with potential industry partners.
