SMA has gained significant experience in the field of illumination and illumination design. Systems incorporating high intensity discharge (short arc) lamps, long arc lamps, spectral mixtures of LEDs, and standard tungsten halogen lamps have been modeled, designed, and built. These systems have consistently performed in accordance with the predictions derived in modeling. A number of unique solutions have been achieved by careful modeling in software, followed by prototyping of the system in the laboratory and resolving any remaining discrepancies between the prototype and the model. We have developed proprietary techniques to integrate imaging and illumination systems, often enabling us to accurately assess combined performance prior even to prototyping.
LEDs are clearly taking over much of the illumination market, and the "Examples" button to the right will take you to a variety of LED-based illumination examples.
