Jan 2007
Cree Inc., a Durham, N.C., maker of LED solid-state lighting components, announced today that SureFire LLC of Fountain Valley, Calif., has chosen its XLamp 7090 XR-E-series LEDs as the light source for three flashlight models it will introduce early this year. The LEDs produce typical luminous flux of 80 lumens at 350 mA, with an efficacy measure of 70 lumens per watt. They also produce the "high-quality, uniform white light valued by flashlight vendors," Cree said in a statement.


GLOSSARY
luminous flux
Descriptive of the radiant power of visible light modified by the eye response. It is the measure of the flow of visible light energy past any given point in space in a given time period, and is defined as the amount of flux radiated by a source of 1 candela into a solid angle of 1 steradian.
photonics
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...
