Lumentra’s product development aims at providing LED white light with outstanding Color Rendering Index (CRI).

LED white light has traditionally been generated by coating the surface of a high efficiency InGaN-GaN blue LED with a multi-phosphor material (for example, with YAG and two nitride based Eu3+ phosphors, N1+ and N2+ )  . As the LED is powered, a portion of the blue light from the LED will leak through the phosphor coating, while a fraction of it will be down-converted by the phosphor into the yellow region. The resulting composite light is perceived as white by the human eye

Lumentra is developing state of the art nanomaterials for high CRI white LED applications.

The spectrum covers the full range from UV to infrared light and is therefore independent of the sensitivity of the human eye to brightness and color. Colorimetry relates to the visual perception of color by the human eye and provides a quantitative and qualitative description of color. Lumentra offers a sophisticated array of photometric and radiometric measurements tailored specifically for LED industries.



We are equipped with state of the art thermal characterization facilities which enable us to provide the following thermal measurements. Accurate knowledge of the thermal characteristics of a SSL luminaire can therefore result in improved performance and longer lifetimes. Thermal effects have a significant impact on the performance of SSL devices. We provide extensive computer thermal modeling of luminaires.



Lumentra’s measurement and calibration services are carried out in accordance with the following international standards. IES LM-79 - Electrical and Photometric Testing of Solid-State Lighting Devices. IES LM-80 - Lumen Depreciation of LED Light Sources. ANSI C78.377 - Chromaticity of SSL Products. Energy Star - Energy Efficiency for SSL.
