Keywords:LEDs  general lighting  solid-state lighting  retrofit 

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are a rapidly evolving technology and are becoming viable for many general lighting applications, usually referred to as solid-state lighting (SSL). The most relevant examples of LED lighting applications are indoor uses in commercial, industrial, and residential environments; outdoor applications like street lights and parking lights; and architectural and decorative lighting where LEDs were initially adopted because of their ability to emit the whole spectrum of colours.

Here's a tutorial that details the expanding role that LEDs are playing in general lighting applications. It compares LED performance versus other lighting technologies. It also analyses the main challenges of designing LED lamps that retrofit existing lighting systems.
