• Solid State Lighting

• Light-emitting diodes (LED)

• Organic LED (OLED)

• Fluorescent

• Linear fluorescent

• Compact fluorescent

• Induction fluorescent

• Cold cathode fluorescent

• High intensity discharge

• Metal halide

• High pressure sodium (HPS)

• Plasma

• Filament

• Incandescent

• Tungsten-halogen
