The innovative Optisolis LEDs from Nichia have a light spectrum that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight.
The extraordinary result is achieved by using a revolutionary new phosphor technology and special blue LED chip. The spectrum of the 420nm blue chip contains almost no UV emissions and in combination with the phosphor achieves a CRI value of 98+, an ultrahigh number considering sunlight has CRI 100.
The Nichia Optisolis LEDs high quality of light renders colors accurately and adds the benefit of increased awareness of contrast and texture.
