Careers & Specialisations - Career in Lighting Research

Lighting education in India is at a very novice stage. Post Graduate Programme in Lighting Technology Management is the need of the hour. The scope of the lighting research is to incorporate the art, science and technology of lighting, application of technology, essentials for the design, installation and operation of a suitable lighting system. 26% of the world's electric energy generation is spent on lighting alone. This is going to increase with the lighting penetrating in video projection, cinema projection, biological lights, aqua & tissue culture, and environmental pollution control.. The India is on the move and the economy is healthy and stable. With an estimated GDP growth of about 8 % every segment in industry is experiencing healthy growth figures. It is no wonder therefore that the lighting industry has experienced a welcome shift in consumer demand over the last three years.

Government of India has recently liberalized its trading policy, which has opened the doors for international organizations wanting to enter the Indian US$500-million-a-year lighting market The current scenario and the growth rate of the Indian lighting market is visible from the following figures

The above figure clearly indicates that the Lighting Industry in India is in its maturing stages. With an estimated market of over Rs.8600 crores the industry is witnessing tremendous growth. During the last three years the lighting industry has adjusted and considerably modified its approach in order to remain competitive in an increasingly open market scenario.

  • Rs. 1250 crore industry (US $ 290 mn) in 98-99, with 20% of turnover coming from the unorganised sector.
  • Imports < 5%.. Around Rs. 50 crores (US $ 11 mn) in 97-98. Exports around Rs. 30 crs (US $ 7 mn) in 97-98
  • Technological sophistication is still in its infancy stage
  • Lighting industry in India is seven decades old and has gone through a period of transition and growth
  • Lighting load is approximately 17% of the total connected load - around 100,000 MW for the year 2000
  • The industry has developed from being an importer of lighting systems to a self sufficient, indigenous producer of lighting systems

ULTRA VIOLET (UV) LIGHT & its Applications

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength shorter than that of the visible region, but longer than that of soft X-rays. The name means "beyond violet" (from Latin ultra, "beyond"), violet being the color of the shortest wavelengths of visible light. Some of the UV wavelengths are colloquially called black light, as it is invisible to the human eye. Some animals, including birds, reptiles, and insects such as bees, can see into the near ultraviolet. Many fruits, flowers, and seeds stand out more strongly from the background in ultraviolet wavelengths as compared to human color vision. The Sun emits ultraviolet radiation in the UVA, UVB, and UVC bands, but because of absorption in the atmosphere's ozone layer, 99% of the ultraviolet radiation that reaches the Earth's surface is UVA.

Applications : Pest Control, Spectrophotometry, Analyzing minerals, Biochemistry, Photolithography, Sterilization, Disinfecting drinking water , Food Processing, Fire detection, Telecom Application, Industrial Purpose,
Defense / Warfare Applications.

INFRARED (IR) LIGHT & its Applications

Infrared (IR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of microwave radiation. The name means "below red",red being the color of visible light of longest wavelength. Infrared radiation spans three orders of magnitude and has wavelengths between approximately 750 nm and 1 mm.

Applications: Night vision, Digital Cameras, Thermography, Heating, Communications, Spectroscopy
