At UC Davis, the California Lighting Technology Center is establishing “The Color Lab” in collaboration with the Center for Mind and Brain to explore the impact of discrete color spectra on stress, mood, and alertness.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Professor Jae Yong Suk to UC Davis! Suk joins the CLTC research team as Associate Director, and the Department of Design as an associate professor teaching lighting and daylighting design courses. Suk brings a unique background as a highly accomplished researcher, professor, and internationally recognized lighting designer, which will enhance CLTC's ongoing research, education, and demonstration activities.
Today, adaptive lighting is considered best practice for numerous outdoor applications and has been incorporated into many current energy standards. However, outdoor areas with heightened security requirements are often excluded from adaptive lighting control requirements and these areas remain lit with high, uniform levels of static illumination.
To address this gap, CLTC partnered with the Office of Naval Research to evaluate the energy-savings potential and end-user acceptance of adaptive lighting for outdoor security applications.
