Bartenbach GmbH consists of four divisions, i.e. lighting design, research & development, lighting solutions and the Bartenbach academy. The effect light has on people is the central theme of Bartenbach’s work. In the planning of daylighting and artificial light as well as in the development of innovative lighting solutions a team of physicists, psychologists, applications and electronic specialists, mathematicians, architects and designers looks at light in all of its facets. The starting point of every conception is always the desired appearance of a space. Considering aspects of visual perception leads to a lighting concept. Man with his visual, emotional and health needs is placed at the focus of all these considerations.
As part of the network of the international knowledge community Bartenbach research & development is always at the cutting edge of research related to lighting. Continuous fundamental and applications oriented research flows directly into applications and product innovation. As partner for research and development the Bartenbach company put this experience into the service for clients. These clients across the world work in the lighting industry, are research partners and customers who want to generate additional benefits in their respective business areas.

Light Diffuser from Freudenberg: nonwovens for uniform light distribution in LED luminaires
Modern LED lighting systems require optical components. The aim is to transform punctiform light sources into a homogenously lit surface. Innovative Light Diffuser from Freudenberg are precisely tailor-made for this requirement. The high performance nonwovens based on special polyester fibers disperse light points – even at short distances from the light source. In addition, the diffusers achieve an excellent light output ratio and lighter, more compact lighting solutions. The light scattering media can be perfectly integrated into existing light constructions without having to change the design. Different weight versions for setting-defined opacity, as well as film reinforced and self-adhesive versions, offer manufacturers and planners a high degree of flexibility – for sophisticated and cost efficient lighting systems.
IQ Structures is an advanced technology company focusing on development and mass production of special micro- and nano-structures that give materials and products unique properties and functions. Such precisely calculated nano-structures can turn a simple plastic into a fully functional optical component, anti-counterfeiting element or other high-value industrial product.
NANOPTIQS is a brand for revolutionary nano-structured optical components that use completely new approach to design and mass production. Such elements are smaller, thinner, and lighter in mass and dimensions and at the same time very precise in light control.The main opportunities they bring to the market: New design options of luminaires
Huge flexibility in functional applications
Possibility of miniaturization of the luminaires
A highly productive way of producing optics while saving material, time and energy

The LED professional publications were launched in 2006, in 2011 the LED professional Symposium +Expo was introduced and now, in 2017, the Trends in Lighting Forum & Show has joined the company’s portfolio. Today Luger Research cooperates with multiple lighting organizations, scientific, event and media partners around the globe.
Having “Ever Researching for a Brighter World” as our motto, Nichia has grown in the field of manufacturing and sales of fine chemicals, particularly inorganic luminescent materials (phosphors). In the process of the challenging pursuit of brighter luminescent and light-emitting materials, we succeeded in developing and commercializing the super high brightness Blue LED in 1993. It was accepted with great amazement in the related industries throughout the world. Since the first announcement of the Blue LED in 1993, Nitride-based LEDs in different emission colors ranging from Ultraviolet to Yellow have been contributing to the diversification of LED application fields. In addition to LEDs, a lot of resources are now being focused on the R/D of bluish purple laser diodes, which will definitely play a key role for the further expansion of the information media industry. We have a belief that Nitride-based semiconductors will become one of the most exciting areas of the semiconductor industry in the near future.We hope that Nichia will continue to be a company that will be able to make a contribution to the world by evolving its original and unique technologies in the field of manufacturing.
