Development of a Multi-Emitter LED Light Source
With the rise in popularity of LED light sources, it’s become possible to address diminished color quality at low light levels. This decreased color quality is a result of the human visual systems loss of sensitivity to color at low light levels, resulting in washed out and dull colors. In the market today, there are products that attempt to recreate the impressive color rendering quality that an incandescent bulb does, but most fall short. Our current research tackles this problem by assessing the performance of a multi-emitter LED light source. This multi-emitter LED attempts to combat the diminished saturation of colors by offering tunable channels of light of varying wavelengths. Results that show that diminished color saturation can be combated with a highly engineered light spectrum. With successful development of this light source, in a commercially standard size, places like museums and restaurants will be experienced in a whole new way.
