Comparison between different lighting sources, lighting standards, basics of all-solid-state lamps, solid-state lighting systems, sensor fundamentals, signal conditioning, functional aspects of different sensors, sensor device examples, technology trend and challenges of solid-state lighting and sensor devices.
By the end of the course, students should demonstrate the following outcomes:
- have a brief picture of the technology aspects of various solid-state lighting systems and sensor devices;
- clear understanding on the physics of light generation from semiconducting junctions, important parameters governing the performance of high-power light-emitting diodes, system design consideration;
- clear understanding on the operation principles of common sensor devices and their design considerations;
- appreciation of technology trend and challenges of solid-state lighting and sensor device technologies.
