CEO & CTO Announcement

Ceravision are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Graeme Lister as Chief Executive Officer & Chief Technology Officer.

Graeme commented;

I am delighted to join the staff of Ceravision as CEO & CTO after more than four years interaction with the company as a consultant. Ceravision have developed an exciting new lighting technology, which we are introducing into the market to compete with and improve on existing technologies. The full potential of the technology has yet to be exploited, and I believe we are only at the beginning of a road to develop lighting products for such varying applications as general lighting, horticulture and water and air purification. It is an honour for me to be given the chance to help guide the development of these products to fruition, together with Ceravision’s team of skilled and innovative lighting professionals.

I joined Thorn Lighting in 1987, where my specialist knowledge of plasma physics played an important role in the development of Genura, the first “electrodeless” incandescent lamp replacement. Later, at Osram Sylvania, I was actively involved in the research and development of both fluorescent and metal halide electrodeless lamps. Although electrodeless fluorescent lamps now have an established place in the market, the introduction of electrodeless metal halide technology was limited by the cost and complexity of the electronics. Ceravision’s innovative technology has provided  cost effective and energy efficient lighting solutions which will finally enable electrodeless metal halide lamps to find a place in the market.

Further Information

Future Applications

Energy efficiency is a global driver within many markets and Ceravision’s core technology has the ability to address these markets. Due to the flexible nature of the technology we are able to facilitate a variety of power levels (400 W to 5 kW) and spectra ranging from visible to UV light.


Ceravision’s High Efficiency Plasma (HEP) light is particularly suited to medium and high power applications. The light is emitted from a very small source, which enables Ceravision to accurately focus and distribute the light. This in turn facilitates significantly greater optical performance.

Intellectual Property

Ceravision maintains an extensive Intellectual Property (“IP”) portfolio comprising Patents, Trade Marks and Design Rights.
