It is reported that all designers in E-Lite were positively researching and developing a new product under the guidance of leaders in the past few months. This week, this company publicly launches LED Area Light with Graphene, which is named as GrapheneismTM.
As we all know, graphene is an allotrope of carbon, which is formed by carbon atom in a two-dimensional honeycomb structure. It is thought as completely transparent and only absorbs 2.3% of light so it can be seen with the naked eye. In 2004, two researchers at The University of Manchester eventually worked out to extract graphene from graphite and won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their pioneering work. Ever since then, as the world's thinnest material, graphene is set to revolutionize almost every part of life.
Graphene and its composite materials have remarkable physical properties, therefore many promising commercial applications. For example, it is ultra-light yet incredibly flexible. Meanwhile, it is a superb conductor both electrically and thermally and can act as a perfect barrier - not even helium can pass through it.
Why LED price is so high? It is because of aluminum radiator. At this moment, with the participating of graphene composite materials, it perfectly substitutes the position of aluminum radiator. In this way, both the manufacturing and installation cost are decreased greatly.
The emerging of LED Area Light with graphene is only the start. It’s believed that graphene would make lighting market have much more unexpected changes in the near future.
