Trying to create a light close to sunlight, we have come a long way. Initially, they began experiments with their own two-spectral luminaires (blue and red), but their application did not give the desired result, because, contrary to the existing opinion, plants need the average component of the spectrum, too. The lack of natural light causes various disorders in plants. Plants need sunlight to grow in quantitative and qualitative terms. It is not so much in northern latitudes, and traditional lamps in greenhouses cannot replace it.

  • the limited spectrum of light radiation does not allow growing full-fledged plants with their rich content of useful substances, organoleptic and chemical indicators are worse than those of plants grown under the Sun.
  • with the time of work, the spectrum of the emitted light is shifted to the red side and the plants especially do not receive a sufficient emission spectrum.
  • high power consumption.

    As a result of traditional methods of growing plants in greenhouses, we have a high production cost and low organoleptic and chemical indicators of production.

    Plants grow, bloom and bear fruit through the process of photosynthesis. Two main components are involved in this process - chlorophyll groups A and B and carotenoids. They perceive the colors of the full spectrum, and not the trimmed area.

Spectrum of 2 LEDs emitting  light

    Such radiation is easily obtained by mixing the light of 2 LEDs emitting light in two bands with peaks at 460 and 660 nm. but this is not enough. It is the yellow-green part that activates the photoreceptors in the plant, allowing more complete use of the extreme spectral components.

    Therefore, we began to conduct experiments on the creation of a full spectrum of RGB LEDs, later, a spectrum of luminaires, was created using 12 groups of monochrome LEDs. The latter option produced more or less acceptable results, but the power consumption began to approach the consumption of electricity by lamps of sodium and mercury lamps, and the cost of such luminaires was quite high, which made their application not cost-effective. Therefore, we have come a long way towards creating polymers that allowed us to lift the middle part of the spectrum without large losses of light flux.

Plants grow during 22 days period in our laboratory without any fertilisers and without acces to natural sun light

Extension of the LED service life

    Unique composite thermally conductive materials have been created, which make it possible to remove heat from the heated surface of the LEDs as much as possible, which has a positive effect on its durability. The service life of LEDs, without the degradation of crystals, can be increased from 100,000 hours to 200,000 hours, which corresponds to 22 years of continuous operation.
