Lighting solutions have come a long way from the humble and ubiquitous candle. Looking back, Italian physicist Alessandro Volta’s (1745–1827) provided contributions to power and electricity, enabling a future move from chemical lighting to electrical lighting. British chemist Humphrey Davy (1778–1829) would develop a wick lamp with a mesh screen, providing coal miners with the first safety lamp (1815). American inventor Thomas Edison (1847–1931) would invent an early version of the light bulb, and Joseph Swan (1828–1914) would successfully develop the incandescent light bulb. And now, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have dramatically changed the lighting landscape bringing new developments and ushering in recent trends (Figure 1).

Though I am not a genius like many of these men, I am a subject matter expert in LED lighting solutions. I recently connected with my friend and colleague, Scott Kleinle, a General Manager at Amphenol. Scott and I got to sit down and discuss the latest technology trends in indoor and outdoor lighting solutions. This blog will share with you some of those lighting solutions trends.
