  • Bivar Forms Solid-State Lighting Unit
Oct 2007
Optoelectronics maker Bivar Inc. of Irvine, Calif., announced it has formed an Engineered Illumination business unit to provide energy efficient, aesthetically enhanced solid-state lighting (SSL) products for industrial applications. "OEMs are accelerating their transition from traditional lighting to SSL solutions across industrial markets and applications,” said Michael Finn, Bivar’s vice president of strategic business development. "We are addressing the growing demand for improved ways to light existing products, and the evolutional need for application-specific configurations to illuminate new products. With our dedicated business unit, Bivar is now poised to deliver innovative SSL solutions to a broad spectrum of vertical markets." The company said the unit will initially focus on products that provide directional lighting in industrial applications including: Kiosk, vending, enclosures, refrigerated cabinets, instrumentation, transportation equipment, and industrial machinery and controls.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
