PERFECT LIGHT STARTS WITH PERFECT CRYSTALS
We manufacture LEDs using a unique GaN-on-GaN (Gallium Nitride on Gallium Nitride) process that provides massive advantages. We grow GaN on GaN to create a perfect crystal structure with 1000x fewer defects and 5x more light per unit area. This advanced technology at the core of our lamps allows for amazing color rendering, natural looking whites, and crisp shadows. Unlike other companies that use Gallium Nitride layers on cheaper, foreign substrates like sapphire or silicon carbide we can assure you're getting simply perfect light.
THE GaN on GaN DIFFERENCE
At the core
GaN on GaN (Gallium Nitride) is the core proprietary technology powering each of our LED lamps. It's the recipe for growing crystals that separates us from the pack.
Soraa LED crystals are grown in its purest form with fewer defects than conventional LEDs. This allows energy/light to flow through more freely and easily.
5x More Light
With perfect crystal structures 5x more light is emitted per unit area. This allows robust and simple LED lamp design with remarkable color and beam performance.
GaN on GaN enables Soraa LEDs to emit violet light, where traditional LEDs emit blue light. This allows Soraa LEDs to render all colors of the spectrum with accuracy.
Full Spectrum Color
Unlike traditional LEDs, Soraa LEDs render every color of the visible spectrum (think rainbow) – starting at violet and ending at red.
Soraa Vivid Color Technology renders the full spectrum of color with total accuracy – creating a light source most comparable to natural sunlight.
EXACTLY LIKE NATURAL SUNLIGHT
Why is this important? Our behaviors, emotional well-being and human interactions depend on seeing colors as we are meant to see them. Without getting too science-y and making your eyes glaze over, it works like this: Natural visible light starts at violet and ends at red, the accurate rendering of color requires light to have the right amount of spectral content in every wavelength from 400nm to 700nm.
To do this, we start with our GaN on GaN powered LED that emits violet light at a peak frequency between 410 and 420nm, not blue light like all other LEDs. We then use a multi-phosphor mix, so that the light covers the entire range down to 700nm, or deep red. This means we’ve created natural full-spectrum light, continuous and unbroken from violet (400nm) to deep red (700nm). Still with us? Ok good.
Violet not Blue
Soraa's GaN on GaN emits violet, where traditional LEDs emit blue light. This allows Soraa LEDs to render the infinite shades of white.
Many white objects carry fluorescent agents only picked up by violet light. Soraa's Natural White Technology reveal whites true to its indented hue – from warm rich creams to cool bright whites.
Light colored objects like teeth, textiles, flowers and foods appear true to their shade.
True to Life Whites
GaN on GaN LEDs enable us the flexibility to provide more lumens per electrical watt and tune our LED to emit light in the violet range of wavelengths, 400nm to 440nm. This violet light allows you to see the clarity and brightness of whites.
Unlike other blue LEDs whose emission starts at 430nm, our spectral emission begins at 400nm, providing all the fluorescent excitation needed to clearly distinguish between shades of white. Our products emit no harmful ultra-violet light and will never interrupt your circadian rhythm.
POINT SOURCE OPTICS
folded prism optics
Our unique folded optics with precision-cut prismatic lenses, allows our LED lamps to focus beams within a very compact optical design.
Our single source LEDs cast single sharp shadows, providing unparalleled contrast and depth to any environment or setting.
Point Source Optics allow perfect center to edge light distribution with great color consistency, so you get more quality light precisely where you want it.
Point Source Optics create perfect beams
Directional lighting requires LED lighting manufacturers to create well controlled beam angles from 9 to 60 degrees; tight form factors; uniform color across the beam; and sharp single shadows like halogen and incandescent lamps.
The large size of most LED light sources makes this a challenge. Laws of optics tell us that large sources in small form result in wide beam angles. Color variations across the LED light source are often clearly seen in the beam. Multiple-source-arrays of LEDs used to create sufficient lumen output cast multiple shadows, obscuring detail in colors and textures.
Our answer to these challenges is a tour-de-force mix of integrated LED, optical engineering and a little bit of sorcery to create simply perfect beams.
