Indika Perera, PhD
Lecturer, Research Scientist
Lighting Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Indika Perera is a research scientist with the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His research interests include thermodynamics, heat transfer, material characterization, and additive manufacturing of solid-state lighting components and systems. Dr. Perera’s expertise is in the thermal management of LED lighting systems and of phosphor and down conversion materials used in LED packages, including the development of a mathematical model for predicting the temperature distribution in an LED phosphor layer. His current research includes investigations of the thermal properties of 3-D printed heat sinks and components for use in LED lighting systems, characterizations of composite materials used in additive manufacturing, and analysis of theoretical models for predicting the thermal conductivity of 3-D printed components.
