The technology of LIGHT CASCADES® was developed initially by the French LPRL laboratory.
CASCADE develops luminescent formulations composed of optically active substances which interact with light to create a “light cascade” effect. These formulations are integrated into a host material in order to provide desired optical performance for the end use, including agricultural and photovoltaic applications. The proprietary additives make it possible to convert the incident radiation of natural sunlight (or artificial light) selectively in order to boost absorption by the light receptor of interest (plants, solar cells, algae, the human eye, etc.).
CASCADE develops optically active, or luminescent, formulations.
Light can be optimized for multiple applications.
In general, light cascade technology can be integrated within many types of host materials to optimize the properties of light based on the particular application (such as agriculture, algae production, photovoltaic energy, lighting, etc.).
