Title: Lighting Research Today: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

Abstract

Change. It is the one word that best characterizes the environment for lighting research, as well as for lighting technology, in recent years; and yet, beneath the change there is an enduring foundation upon which that research rests. A barrage of new technologies and tools for producing and measuring optical radiation has revolutionized the possibilities for creating and characterizing lighting systems and conditions, but understanding the application of these new technologies and tools builds on a legacy of established measurement methods and protocols. The discovery of a previously unknown photoreceptor has brought new excitement to lighting research and application, but this discovery exists within the context of a long history of applied psychological research in lighting.
