May 16, 2013 – The IES and the quest for the Holy Grail
It all started with a disruptive technology called the incandescent light bulb that changed the way the world thought about light. The IES was formed as a participant in this disruption and sought to describe and define both the quantitative and the qualitative aspects of this new technology – What is the Holy Grail of Light? The search continues to this day as another disruptive technology again changes the manner in which we think about light. No, not the LED; the introduction of solid state technology. What does the near future hold for the IES as it continues to search for the Holy Grail of Light. Please come out to see this exciting program with IES Past-President Fred Oberkircher! Fred’s topic will focus on Lighting Process Integration and solid state lighting. He will also speak about the IES handbook and recent publications. Lunch will be provided and is included in fee.
