Flicker Metrics and Other Quandaries

December 15, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Free – $10
IES Buffalo Section

LEDs are terrific, but they can be subject to a few ailments, Flicker (or, more accurately, Temporal Light Artifacts) is one of them, depending on the combination of driver and dimmer. The responses to a modulating light source can range from mild distraction or annoyance up to migraines, or in rare cases, seizures. This talk will address what we know, and what the best available metrics are, and why one metric cannot predict all responses. It will conclude with simple advice on how to minimize flicker in LED installations.

Bring your questions about lighting research and the future of TLA remediation in a landscape of solid state lightingl.

We look forward to welcoming you to our virtual meeting.

Our Speaker: Naomi Johnson Miller. FIES, FIALD, LC Senior Scientist
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Naomi Miller straddles the line between design and engineering. She uses her decades of experience in architectural lighting design in Upstate New York and San Francisco to educate clients, customers, and practitioners and help nudge the SSL industry toward better, more practical solutions. Researching and reporting on lighting quality issues such as visual comfort, flicker, and light distribution with respect to SSL products, she bridges the gap between technology and application, promotes the wise use of LEDs, works with industry to overcome hurdles and celebrates the opportunities. She recently served on the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Board of Directors, and is both a Fellow of the IES and the IALD.
