For more than 20 years, the LRC has worked to advance the global LED lighting transformation through research, demonstration, and education.

Today, we are helping the lighting industry move forward to the next revolution — adding value to LED lighting through 3D printing.

New Research: 3D Printed Lenses

A PhD candidate at the LRC studied novel 3D-printed optics for LED fixtures with Prof. Narendran. The lenses designed and printed cannot be made using traditional manufacturing methods.
