Advance your knowledge of lighting
Successful lighting professionals must be able to incorporate into their work many new technological and scientific developments. Examples: solid state lighting sources; humans’ perception of light as they age, sustainability and the integration of daylighting with electric lighting; the effects of light on human health; to name a few. Clients rely on and, indeed, expect lighting practitioners to know their specialties and to make well-informed decisions and recommendations on the client’s behalf. That is why the 10th edition of the new IES Lighting Handbook is an essential knowledge reference for anyone in lighting. The 10th edition brings together some of the best minds in the lighting community to present the current state of knowledge as it relates to lighting and lighting design. With reliable and comprehensive information in a single source, practitioners can approach projects with confidence.

Changes to the new edition:
  • New illuminance determination procedure consisting of visual age-based illuminance ranges and mesopic adaptation
  • Extensive updates on light sources, including solid state lighting
  • Holistic and complementary daylighting and electric lighting strategies
  • More extensive and specific qualitative lighting design criteria such as subjective impressions (psychological factors) and architectural spatial factors
  • Broader quantitative criteria such as illuminance uniformities, power and energy aspects, light trespass, and light pollution
  • In-depth coverage of sustainability practices: new chapters on daylighting, controls, sustainability, commissioning and energy management
Features:
  • Provides a compendium of what is known that directly relates to lighting and lighting design
  • Concise explanation of material
  • Content and format tailored to those involved in lighting decisions including practitioners, designers, architects, and engineers
  • Four color throughout; 600+ illustrations that enhance understanding
  • Conveniently-referenced tabular information is exemplified with numerous photographs and illustrations
  • Sustainable practice embedded throughout: refinement of light level criteria, definitive criteria related to brightness and user impressions, factors influencing power and energy use for lighting, and methods to minimize light trespass and light pollution
Comments from Reviewers

“The 10th edition of the IES Lighting Handbook has been thoroughly updated to reflect the current state of lighting knowledge and practice. There is increased emphasis on sustainability, the solid state lighting ‘revolution’, and daylighting and lighting control system strategies as well as the latest legislative trends and industry practices. It is THE comprehensive reference and resource book covering the broad spectrum of Illumination Engineering. This book has clearly been written with the lighting practitioner in mind but will appeal to anybody involved with the various facets of lighting, from light source development to lighting design, from the physiological aspects of light to preparation of contracts. The Handbook emphasizes applications, contains many ready-to-use formulas and tables that give solutions to common problems. It is an indispensible tool! “

“The Handbook is the most thorough and comprehensive revision in the past forty years. Not only is the format completely new, but the scope and depth of the subjects are unprecedented. This new edition is both an authoritative source of data and an eloquent explanation of the “how” and “why” of the IES recommendations. It is quite simply the best Handbook ever.”
Alan Laird Lewis, OD, PhD, FIES

“The new Handbook bridges the gap between the 9th Edition and where the lighting industry has moved. Besides the standard content such as why one might select one source type over another, the 10th Edition has been expanded to include more detail on such topics as the process of lighting design, sustainability and the nonvisual effects of lighting. This has been done in a technically sound and consistent manner with many new and updated graphics. This new edition will serve both the lighting novice and the long time practitioner. It will be a welcome addition to any lighting library.”

“The 10th Edition of the IES Lighting Handbook will consolidate information that I access and use everyday. It is current and truly the "Lighting Authority." I will refer dozens of colleagues to information in the book. I hope they buy it, become familiar with it and use it. It will answer many questions and promote positive professional practice.”
