Professor Harald Haas, CSO of pureLiFi and Professor of Mobile Communications at the University of Edinburgh, has received the International Solid State Lighting Alliance (ISA) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Beijing, China this November.

The award, presented at the 13th International Forum on Solid State Lighting, relates to Professor Haas’s contribution to diversify the applications of solid state lighting (SSL) technology. 2014 Nobel Prize for Physics winner and previous winner of the Outstanding Achievement, Professor Shuji Nakamura, presented Professor Haas with the award.

LiFi, which stands for 'light fidelity', is a technology that can transmit data through light and turn the lamps in every office, home, car or streetlight into wireless Internet access points. It offers higher speeds than traditional wireless technology, greater security and the potential to deliver unprecedented bandwidth and data density.
