discoveries in the history of humankind.
Light opened up a world for the homo
sapiens that had been almost totally
closed to them before: the world of night.
Due to the microelectronic revolution,
the world of light is on the move. Light
sources based on semiconductor
technology are gaining ground.
Edison’s lamps will soon be exhibits in
museums of industrial history. LEDs
(Light Emitting Diodes) save energy and
reduce CO2 emissions - a benefit to our
overheated planet. The new generation
of lamps that we have developed will
revolutionise night photography.
