Holst Centre is an independent R&D center that develops technologies for wireless autonomous sensor technologies and flexible electronics, in an open innovation setting and in dedicated research trajectories. A key feature of Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia based around roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilization that enables Holst Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs.
Light plays a fundamental role in our lives. It provides illumination and stimulation; it can affect our emotions and bring safety to the darkness. Light even regulates basic biological processes deep within our bodies. Flexible, lightweight and shining over large areas in almost any shape, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) will let us do more with light than ever before – opening up new designs and ways to treat illness. And with lighting currently using around 20% of the world’s electricity, OLEDs’ potential for high efficiency could save huge amounts of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
LEDMOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES was born within the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) and founded as a Spin-off Company in December 2012. It´s a high-tech company with international projection in the growing market of intelligent LED lighting.
LEDMOTIVE has invested a lot of resources over the last years working on a solution that meets the lighting needs of human beings while at the same time maintaining high energy-efficiency standards. The core of technology is based on a family of products that include: an LED Module and a system able to record, process and playback any light spectral fingerprint in real-time, regardless of whether it is natural (i.e. sunlight), artificial (i.e. an incandescent light bulb), or custom made for special applications.
LEDMOTIVE patented technology is able to create, record, process, playback and share any light without boundaries. We commercialize an unprecedented technology allowing the user to take full spectral control of light. Our solution integrates a micro-spectrometer to monitor the output spectrum and correct it in real time. The more channels are used in a solution, the higher the likelihood that spectral shifts will occur, so it is critical for LEDMOTIVE’s products to have a spectral control and corrective feedback.
Our LED Modules (with all the intelligence and spectral control) are connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and can perfectly reproduce the physical properties of visible light, in a similar way an MP3 player can reproduce very accurately the properties of sound. Along with the LED modules, we also manufacture specific light accessories and we provide with the easy-to-use software capable to control the lights.

The LOT-QuantumDesign group is a leading European distributor of high-quality scientific instruments and components supplying to academic and industrial scientific research customers. The group offers components and systems used in materials science, imaging, spectroscopy, photonics, nanotechnology and life science research. Part of our components are light measurement systems from International Light Technologies Inc. (ILT). ILT offer a variety of modular light meters and have been the most respected name in research-oriented light measurement for 40 years. Optical radiation is perhaps the most difficult form of energy to measure accurately. Light energy is distributed over wavelength, position, direction, time and polarization. Optical radiometry is the science of light measurement, spanning across the UV, VIS and IR regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Photometry is the subset of radiometry dedicated to the measurement of visible light as it is perceived by the average human eye. A light meter or radiometric light measurement system must be designed to measure the distribution of energy over one parameter while holding all others constant. In addition to high levels of measurement uncertainty, the field of radiometry and photometry has been characterized by confusion of terminology, symbols, definitions and units. ILT´s goal is to provide customers with light measurement solutions to these problems by offering a comprehensive line of accurate modular light meters like radiometers and photometers. There are other low-cost instruments called radiometers on the market. These were designed to measure power from a light source with a constant and known spectrum. However, these instruments give erroneous results when measuring any other radiation. The extremely flexible light measuring system concept of ILT is based on a choice of suitable radiometer display devices and a wide range of different detectors. With specially matched filters and input optics, the detector head allows for custom-designed modular configuration.
All components are calibrated in ILT’s own ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory.
