Another Color In the Rainbow: Luxeon Rebel Adds Deep Red to Its Spectrum

Aug 10, 2011 Within the LED market exist divisions, and within the color division there is the distinction between which wavelength can be produced by the LED. Philips Lumileds has broadened its attainable wavelength by adding deep red (650-670 nm) to its color spectrum, useful in horticulture and entertainment as well as the deep red some governments require in traffic lighting.

As it turns out, this deep red color is significantly different from the standard shade in its improved visibility (again useful in public transit), and it also has double the drive current of most of the other colors available from the Luxeon line. Deep red color has been proven to improve the chlorophyll absorption in plants, and this singular focus on one color wavelength tailors to the switch plant factories and green houses are making from broad-spectrum lights to those that can each perform a different task at different wavelengths.
