SOMERSET, N.J. - Eden Park Illumination is proud to announce the development of a unique patented ultra-thin flat lighting technology based on the science of Microplasma Lighting™. This new lighting device, almost as thin as your average credit card, offers remarkable form factor versatility and will inspire many professionals involved in the application of light.

In addition to producing light levels suitable for illumination applications and being very energy efficient, Microplasma is an earth-friendly, mercury-free light source with a long expected lifetime of up to 50,000 hours.

"This disruptive technology will provide the designer for the first time flat and homogeneous light sources that can be integrated into a space," comments Philip G. Warner, CEO of Eden Park Illumination. "With efficiencies surpassing that of functional LED systems and soon to equal that of fluorescent lighting, and without any mercury content, it can produce form factors that are discreet and will lead to flexible sources in the near future. Micro and nano technology will become common place and will rapidly apply to lighting, emerging as the light source solutions of the 21st century."

Beyond its extremely thin profile of less than 3mm thick, Eden Park's Microplasma device combines a high luminance of up to 13,000 cd/m2 and a current luminous efficacy of 30 lumens per watt (LPW), expecting to reach over 100 LPW. Its toxin-free structure and high energy efficiency result in not only an environmentally responsible solution for a multitude of lighting applications, but a novel form factor which capitalizes on existing and new applications desiring a thin light source.
