DOE releases results in Gateway project testing tunable LED lighting for care facility
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has published another in its Gateway series of research reports that cover actual solid-state lighting (SSL) installations in challenging indoor and outdoor lighting settings. The "Tuning the light in senior care: Evaluating a trial LED lighting system at the ACC Care Center in Sacramento, CA" document details the installation of a programmatic, tunable LED-lighting system in resident rooms and corridors at a senior living facility. Moreover, the researchers installed additional SSL products including occupancy-controlled night lights that provide added safety for residents.
The idea of using tunable LED lighting in a variety of applications, and generally referred to as human-centric lighting (HCL), is not a new one. But some researchers believe we need to know more about the impact of tunable spectrum before trying to use lighting as almost a therapy. Generally, Europe has been more proactive in the HCL area. And we recently covered the use of tunable lighting in a dementia center in Germany.
The tunable LED lighting research is just one topic among many you can find in the DOE Gateway series. In an indoor setting, we most recently covered an OLED project in an office building.
Hope our company Mingxue optoelectronic Co., ltd could learn more from this news.
