Solid-State Lighting: Energy-Efficient Alternative?

Interested in science? Want to learn more about the latest technology breakthroughs in normal English, minus the jargon? Then Café Scientifique at Carnegie Science Center is the place to be!

In the future, when we flip a light switch, could it turn on a solid-state light, rather than an incandescent or fluorescent bulb? Solid-state lighting is the direct conversion of electricity to visible white light. It has the potential to be the much-needed energy efficient technology of the future. Come to the Carnegie Science Center for Café Scientifique to hear Robert F. Davis, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, discuss Solid-State Lighting: Energy-Efficient Alternative?

Café Scientifique will be held on Monday, March 9. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the program is from 7:00 until 9:00 pm. The cash bar is open from 6:00 until 7:30 pm. Admission is free. Be sure to reserve your spot.
