Christmas lecture on lighting technology

Entertaining and exciting insights into lighting technology research


Last week, the annual Christmas Lecture took place at the Adaptive Lighting Systems and Visual Processing Lab. This year's event once again offered a unique mix of festive entertainment and exciting insights into the latest innovations in lighting technology research.

As every year, shortly before the end of the year, the auditorium of the Lighting Technology 1 course was filled with the smell of all kinds of Christmas treats, colourful lighting and many interested guests. In around 90 minutes, Professor Tran Quoc Khanh, lecturer Dr Michael Hamm and the research assistants from the Adaptive Lighting Systems and Visual Processing Lab presented a mixture of entertainment and expertise.

This year's event kicked off with the disruptive innovations of the past 100 years in lighting research, particularly those related to the illumination of Santa Claus's sleigh. In the second part of the event, various entertaining experiments showcased the versatility of light, including a cucumber as a light source, the functionality of the night mode in modern smartphones, an indoor sunset and a laser pointer microscope.

The department expresses gratitude for the lively interest and wishes everyone a wonderful holiday season.
