Lighting the Future: Brighter, Smaller, Faster!


CaptureThe next in the autumn series of Institute of Physics Scotland public lectures in Glasgow will take place on Thursday, 17th December, at 7.30pm in Room 222 of the Kelvin Building, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow.

Janet Milne, of the Intelligent Lighting Centre at the University of Strathclyde will give a talk entitled “Lighting the Future: Brighter, Smaller, Faster!”

This lecture will continue the theme of light-related talks that marks International Year of Light 2015, and is also appropriately festive (just think Christmas lights…)

“Solid state LEDs are revolutionising the lighting industry and are now considered by some to be the future of wireless communications. This event will discuss the development of LEDs for lighting, their benefits and limitations, and current research that is developing both the lighting and communications potential of these versatile and energy efficient light sources.”

Janet Milne graduated with a first class honours degree in Physics from the University of Glasgow and has since developed a broad base of commercial business skills during 17 years in high-technology product development, manufacturing and commercialisation. She has Executive Director level management experience in both early- and late-stage SMEs and currently provides strategic direction to the Intelligent Lighting Centre through connections with industry, government and end-users.

Lecture is free and open to all, and begins at 7.30pm in Room 222 of the Kelvin Building.   For more information see
