LIGHTING SCIENCE

Committee Purpose, Scope and Documents

 
Purpose
Summarize state of the art research on the circadian, neuroendocrine and neurobehavioral effects of ocular light exposure; propose recommendations for the measurement, quantification and reporting of light in the context of these ‘non-visual’ responses to light; propose fundamental principles on the properties of light that should be considered in applications of light affecting circadian, neuroendocrine and neurobehavioral systems or more broadly, human physiology, behavior and health; review documents generated by the IES that are light and health related.
Scope
Included subject matter: Summarizing and reporting current knowledge in retinal photoreceptors and physiology associated the impact of lighting characteristics (quantity, spectrum, timing, duration, light history) on the circadian, neuroendocrine, neurobehavioral and visual systems. Excluded subject matter: ""This committee does not cover safety requirements or risk group classifications for optical radiation from wavelengths from 200 nm through 3,000 nm, or hazards associated with some lamps/lamp systems relative to potential radiation hazards.
