LEDs provide endless possibilities, but commensurate with that are the design challenges. Join LED expert and entrepreneur Carol Lenk and Design News Content Director Alex Wolfe as they discuss practical applications, including: How do you get started in LED design? How do you pick an LED? What are some of the design "gotchas"? And Why are LEDs poised to take over as the default light source?
Speaker(s): Carol Lenk
Carol Lenk is an MIT-educated entrepreneur who was a founder of the venture-backed LED developer, Superbulbs, and is currently associated with Reliabulb. She is co-author of the book, Practical Lighting Design with LEDS
. She has a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and a Masters in Math and Science Education. One of the early pioneers in applying LEDs to general lighting, Lenk has five years of experience in combining theoretical concepts with practical engineering in fields as diverse as optics, thermal modeling, material science, electronics, and mechanical design. She has more than a dozen US and worldwide patents-pending related to LED lighting.
