Founder & Chief Technology Officer of Lighting Science Receives 100th Patent

Lighting Science® (OTCQB: LSCG) a leader in LED lighting technology, announced today that founder and Chief Technology Officer Fred Maxik has been awarded his 100th patent by the United States Patent & Trademark Office. This milestone marks a prestigious career of LED innovation including patents for the first biologically-corrected lighting which is the genesis of the recently launched, ground-breaking Good Night™ LED lamp and the Awake & Alert™ LED lamp.

From its small beginnings in 2004, Lighting Science has become one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers of lighting with Mr. Maxik’s guidance. His extensive array of patents include lamps and luminaires designs, specialized power, optical and thermal management solutions, embedded intelligence including color mixing, wireless networking of luminaires for sensing, automation and communication plus next generation adaptable lighting systems for biological, medical, agricultural and environmental applications.

The 100th patent (U.S. Patent 8608348) illustrates an enclosed method of improved LED thermal management which guards the life of the device. Traditional cooling systems such as vents and other openings allow for the addition of contaminants into the housing of the digital device which often causes early failure or faulty performance. The new invention provides a fluid flow generator cooling system for a digital device that can operate in a sealed system. It is inexpensive to build and install and is energy efficient.
