    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book gives an important and comprehensive insight into the future lighting technology (LED) which will save the earth a substantial amount of energy. It covers the basics about LEDs, then moves into the modelling of LEDs as well as discussing the thermal-related issues in order to be able to use the LEDs in practice. It also discusses how to combine and drive (by use of power electronics) different LEDs as well as different practical aspects of using them. The book is a must-have and is a reference for people working in the field as well as for people wanting to explore the possibility of the technology. The book is written by a world-known leader in the field.' Frede Blaabjerg, Aalborg University, Denmark

    'One of the great energy savers of modern times is the shift from inefficient incandescent lamps to LED lighting. A single comprehensive textbook covering all aspects of LED lighting is both timely and a welcome addition to the field. This is a must-have textbook for practitioners, from researchers to the professional engineer. The mix of fundamental theory, practical applications and the design process is a powerful combination that sets this book apart. The in-depth discussion on dimming is particularly instructive and insightful.' W. G. Hurley, National University of Ireland, Galway

    'A thorough theoretical treatment and modelling of LED devices and systems for practicing engineers.' Praveen K. Jain, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario
