  • Patent number: 9458988
    Abstract: A color/color temperature tunable light emitting device comprises: an excitation source (LED) operable to generate light of a first wavelength range and a wavelength converting component comprising a phosphor material which is operable to convert at least a part of the light into light of a second wavelength range. Light emitted by the device comprises the combined light of the first and second wavelength ranges. The wavelength converting component has a wavelength converting property (phosphor material concentration per unit area) that varies spatially. The color of light generated by the source is tunable by relative movement of the wavelength converting component and excitation source such that the light of the first wavelength range is incident on a different part of the wavelength converting component and the generated light comprises different relative proportions of light of the first and second wavelength ranges.

  • Publication number: 20150339713
    Abstract: A system, method, and device for managing multiple tasks, or conversations, is disclosed. A user interface allows the user to collect and create shared conversations on any number of topics and organize those conversations on a single page. As conversations persist, more information is provided by the plurality of users using the platform, and the user gains information via the conversations he/she chooses to follow. Each conversation is further associated with direct purchasing options, which are suggested to the user based on the common terms within that conversation as well as the common terms associated with the collection of that particular user's managed conversations.

  • Patent number: 8539702
    Abstract: A light source comprises a blue emitting LED operable to generate blue excitation light and a light emitting surface comprising a light transmissive substrate and a phosphor. The LED is configured to irradiate the light emitting surface with excitation light such that the phosphor emits light of a second wavelength and wherein light emitted by the source comprises a combination of blue light from the LED and the second wavelength light from the phosphor. The light emitting surface is interchangeable thereby enabling the source to generate different selected colors of light using the same LED. The phosphor can be provided as a layer on the substrate or incorporated within the light transmissive substrate. The light emitting surface can be configured as a waveguide or as a light transmissive window.
