A brief history of Polaroid Lighting
Edwin H. Land, born on 7 May 1909, was the inventor of the Polaroid camera. At the time of his death, he was the holder of over 500 patents, including filters for sunglasses, for reducing glare in aircraft cockpit windows and for 3-D glasses. He first began researching light-related products while studying at university. Edwin H. Land died on 1 March 1991.
Edwin H. Land began working on light polarisation just one year after graduating from Harvard. Two years later, he filed a patent application for the first synthetic polariser. (A polariser is a component that filters out electromagnetic waves, e.g. visible light, using a specific polarisation generated from unpolarised, partially polarised or differently polarised electromagnetic waves.) Edwin H. Land developed a complete solution to the problem of poor vision at night, using polarised glass in headlights to enable drivers to see.
The first desk lamp was brought onto the market as a Polaroid lighting product even before Edwin H. Land designed the instant camera.
Polaroid light was born.
