The World Supports Breast Cancer Awareness in Pink 2013

LEDs make it very easy to program lighting to do just about anything you want.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as part of the movement, operators of large buildings and other landmarks are turning pink to support to the cause.  To demonstrate how ordinary buildings are supporting the cause using LEDs, here’s a list of buildings in and around Philadelphia turning pink this month. And more than 200 buildings in Chicago are turning pink this month. 

Here’s a collection of some of the most spectacular buildings and landmarks around the world in pink as well as some office buildings supporting breast cancer awareness.

About Beth

It seems like LEDs are in everything these days – backlighting everything from your mobile phone, Apple iPad and flat screen HDTV to traffic lights, light bulbs and even the kitchen sink. But, making LEDs is a complex process that begins with the creation of sapphire. Not the pretty blue gemstone, but large commercial crystals that can weigh as much as 400 lbs. Once these large sapphire crystals are grown into boules and cooled, they’re cut into cores, cut further into flat circular wafers, polished and then used to grow LEDs. About 85 percent of HB-LEDs (high brightness) are grown on sapphire. There’s not that much information out there about the process. This blog is meant to shed some light (excuse the pun) on sapphire, LEDs and the industry that is devoted to making our lives just a little brighter. In the months ahead, we’ll tackle some topics that will help you understand a little more about sapphire and LED industry. Here’s a sample of what we’ll cover in the coming months: • Growing sapphire • For a wafer, size matters • Quality - When sapphire wafers go bad • LED light bulbs • Market & myths • Interviews with industry shining stars • Reports from industry events • Current events in perspective Please join us each week to learn more about sapphire and the LED market. We look forward to seeing you.
