Time to PARtay!

PAR is an acronym for Parabolic Aluminized Reflector. PAR bulbs utilize a parabolic mirror in order to concentrate their light output into a focused beam for wide flood, regular flood, and spotlight angles, making them a much more precise option for deirectional lighting than, say, a BR (Bulged Reflector) bulb. Much like a BR bulb, however, a PAR bulb's diameter is determined by the numerical value following its acronym. The size can be found by measuring the diameter from the widest point of the bulb in 1/8 of an inch increments. For example, a PAR16 (the smallest of the PAR series bulbs, by the way) would have a diameter of 16/8" - or 2". 

PAR LED bulbs, like those made by GoodBulb, can be found in a variety of applications in both residential and commercial settings. Keeping in mind their precision and versatility, reach out to us via phone, email, or live chat with your questions about how to best take advantage of these incredible LEDs. 

Did You Know?

Bioluminescence, the biochemical emission of light by a living organism - like eels, fireflies, and glowworms, has been discovered in humans. Wait, what?

Light Bulb Moment

To expand on the statement above, in Japan, researchers have been able to prove the existence of bioluminescence in humans through a series of images taken using cryogenic charge-coupled device, a highly sensitive imaging system. Through this, they discovered that the human body emits light both directly and rhythmically. The intensity of the light emitted is about 1000x lower than what is detectable by the naked eye, and is constantly changing based on the time of day. For example, we shine brightest in the middle of the day, and dim toward the evening. This is tracked through ultraweak photon emissions released in the form of light through changes in energy metabolism within the body.

Researchers also found something quite intriguing with this discovery in that our bioluminescence does not correspond to the amount of heat we naturally generate. Thermal imaging taken shows a wholly different visual result to that of the highly sensitive cameras used to capture our bioluminescence on film. This goes to show how much more interesting life can get if we are willing to keep digging!
