Rising Star of UK Lighting Design Gets Green Light from Photonic Products


Photonic Products Ltd, the laser diode specialist company, is proud to be sponsoring Paul Cocksedge, the keynote speaker at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada, September 22-23, 2005, in Toronto.

Paul Cocksedge is one of the UK’s hottest new lighting designers. He will present his revolutionary lighting designs plus an overview of the latest products, designers, innovations in technology and emerging lighting trends coming out of the UK today.

“Crystallize”, designed by Paul Cocksedge for the Swarovski Crystal Palace Collection, is a chandelier made from light. When there is no light the chandelier disappears. Using lasers and crystals in perfect alignment, the iconic shape of a Swarovski crystal is drawn in mid air. At the heart of the chandelier is a single crystal which sparkles as it catches the light.

The development of this chandelier was made using Photonic Products’ green laser modules.

The 532nm DPSS green laser module is a compact, self-contained module designed for use where a highly visible beam is required, primarily in alignment and also machine vision, industrial inspection and scientific equipment.

It produces a very visible circular output beam of less than 2.0mm diameter and output powers of 0.9mW and 4mW with a maximum operating current of 250mA. Power stability is better than 5% over 7 hours. Modulation capability of 0-1kHz is standard. In addition, the module uses a front facet monitor photodiode to maintain a stable output power, as opposed to using the internal monitor of the laser diode, which is often less responsive.

IIDEX/NeoCon Canada is Canada’s largest conference and exposition for the design, construction and management of the built environment. This presentation is a keynote lecture in the “Exposure to Light” programme focused on lighting and takes place on Thursday, September 22.

Since graduating from the RCA, Paul Cocksedge has exhibited his work at the Design Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum and was one of the four designers nominated for the Design Museum’s Designer of the Year prize in 2004.

Photonic Products is a manufacturer of electro-optical sub-assemblies and innovative optoelectronic components based on semiconductor laser diode technology and also a specialist distributor of high performance industrial laser diodes, LEDs and precision optical lenses. It is a Queen’s Award for International Enterprise winner.
