Illumineer of the Year

Jy Bhardwaj, CTO; Danielle Chamberlin, PhD, Sr. Director, Converter Technology, Parijat Deb, Vice President of Epitaxy Technology; Ashish Tandon, Sr. Director of Device Technology R&D; Oleg Shchekin, Vice President of Device Architecture — Lumileds

Over the past 12 months, under the leadership of CTO Jy Bhardwaj, Lumileds has realized a series of ground-breaking innovations and market firsts, enabling some of the most sophisticated designs in the lighting industry. In developing LED architectures, the team focused on efficacy improvements in operating conditions, useful light in applications and color quality. Lumileds coherent set of technologies allows for substantial performance gains at the fixture level. By adding the creation of new phosphors with narrow band emission, luminous efficacy has been further improved, better color rendering is enabled, and spectral distributions can be further optimized to the demands of specific applications, including horticulture, medical fields and to support a healthier lit environment.

Dr. Martin Moore-Ede, CEO, Doros Platika, Chairman, John Luciani, Director of Engineering, Andrew Moore-Ede, Director of Client Services, Patricia Lever, Director of Operations — Circadian Light

With mounting evidence that light can both entrain and disrupt circadian rhythms and impact human health and wellbeing, there is a critical need for the lighting industry to define the circadian spectral characteristics of light and to develop dynamic lighting solutions to address this risk. Over the past five years, Circadian Light has accomplished both tasks: creating evidence-based specifications for workplace circadian lighting, and developing specialized LED chips, control systems, and luminaires for 24/7 operations.

Tigran Galstian, CTO LensVector and professor of Engineering Physics at Université Laval — LensVector

Dr. Tigran Galstian is a professor of Engineering Physics at Université Laval (Québec, Canada) and is the holder of Canada’s Tier-1 Chair in “Liquid Crystals and Behavioral Biophotonics”.  His group is investigating the molecular self-organization mechanisms and their impact on the key material (optical+) properties as well as their influence on the behavior of molecules (such as chiral diffusion) and living microorganisms (such as bacteria) in such systems.


Taking place during the Strategies in Light conference and exhibition, the Sapphire Awards Gala will present an exciting networking opportunity in a spectacular venue with great food and entertainment. Although the competition is fierce, attendees will enjoy meeting with PennWell’s LED & Lighting Network team and fellow industry professionals in the spirit of camaraderie and celebration of SSL achievements over the past year.
