What is Solid State Lighting?

Solid-state lighting (SSL) is a type of lighting that uses LEDs, OLEDs or polymer light emitting diodes as its source (as opposed to traditional electrical filaments or gas). The term Solid State refers to the fact that the light in an LED comes from a solid object (a piece of semiconductor) rather than a vacuum or gas tube as is the case in traditional incandescent and fluorescent lamps.

SSL produces visible light with virtually no heat, the design has greater resistance to shock, vibration and wear, which extends the life of the lamps.
