For Electrical Engineering (ESAT) TC, Technology Campus Ghent we are looking for a PhD scholar to perform research on smart lighting luminaires with a tunable radiation pattern.

SMART LIGHTING LUMINAIRES WITH A TUNABLE RADIATION PATTERN

The Light and Lighting Laboratory of KU Leuven, department ESAT, has an excellent reputation within the lighting sector. Optical design of luminaires, energy-efficient lighting and color/appearance of materials are the main research topics. The laboratory features the most advanced light measurement equipment, necessary to guarantee services to businesses and to support (doctoral) research. Currently 20 people are employed within the laboratory and there are contacts with more than 70 companies from within the lighting sector.

Project

The current method to implement smart lighting is by adapting the total emitted light flux of the used LED luminaires on the basis of measurement data captured by light and motion sensors. In this PhD project we want to make an important step forward by investigating smart lighting luminaires with a tunable radiation pattern. Such lighting systems would make it possible to adapt the artificial lighting conditions perfectly to varying circumstances such as the presence and position of persons, incoming daylight and different room arrangements.
For the development of such novel luminaires we want to use a number of state-of-the-art technologies, being: freeform optics, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), micro-LED arrays and efficient laser diodes. Within the Light & Lighting Laboratory ongoing research is already looking to the design of freeform optics for the accurate manipulation of light and the use of laser diodes for general lighting. In this project we want to realize smart luminaire demonstrators with a tunable radiation pattern by an intelligent combination of the above technologies.
An additional goal of this PhD project is the demonstration of the real added-value of such adaptive lighting luminaires by testing some interesting smart lighting scenarios in practice.

Profile

For this function, we are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate with the degree Master of Science or Master of Engineering Science/Technology, with a strong interest in lighting technology, optical simulations, measurements and design. In addition to a good scientific and research attitude, the candidate also processes strong written and oral communication skills.

Offer

We offer a PhD scholarship for 4 years on condition that an academic approval is granted to the candidate. The research will be executed within the Light & Lighting Laboratory of KU Leuven, located at the Technology Campus in Gent. Tentative start date: 01/10/2017.
