  1. 1. Lighting simulation for a more value-driven building design process

    Author : Anahita Davoodi; Thorbjörn Laike; Peter Johansson; Annika Moscati; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : lighting simulation; lighting design; lighting quality; energy efficiency; perception;

    Abstract : Concerns about global warming are increasing, hence, the urgency to cut carbon emissions. Reducing energy consumption, including lighting energy, is seen as the primary solution. Yet, solving the environmental factor should not come at the cost of other pillars of sustainable development. READ MORE

  2. 2. Do lighting control and user interface design matter to occupant behaviour? The case of optimal lighting use in non-residential buildings

    Author : Pimkamol Mattsson; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; characteristic; design; energy reduction; energy-saving behaviour; lighting control; light switch; lighting use; non-residential building; perception; user interface;

    Abstract : The lowering of energy use from artificial lighting in buildings is vital to reaching the goal of reducing CO2 emissions. Hence, changes in individuals’ behaviours regarding lighting use have received increased attention. Feedback on energy use has often been used to change individuals’ behaviour. READ MORE

  3. 3. Equilibrium User Centred Lighting Design Towards the development of a lighting design that is individually psychologically, physiologically and visually supportive

    Author : Monica Säter; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Psychological; physiological and visual support.; User centred lighting design;

    Abstract : Why and in what way should daylight and artificial light be designed for the indoor environment in order to fulfil goals about visual comfort and light-related health? When the outdoor and indoor interactions of man, light, colour and space (MLCS) are compared to one other, the spectral component plays the decisive role (Hollwich 1979, p. 90). READ MORE

  4. 4. Bilayer Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells for Signage and Lighting Applications

    Author : E. Mattias Lindh; Ludvig Edman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic electronics; Light-emitting electrochemical cell; Signage; Display; Luminescent line art; Inkjet printing; Direct-write printing; fysik; Physics; Electronics; elektronik;

    Abstract : Artificial light surrounds us in a manifold of shapes. It is mainly utilized for illumination, but also for graphical communication of complex and evolving messages and information, among other things. It can be generated in different ways with incandescent lamps and fluorescent tubes constituting two common examples. READ MORE

  5. 5. Light-phyllosphere interactions in greenhouse grown ornamentals

    Author : Samareh Gharaie; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have emerged as a promising artificial lighting source in greenhouse production of horticultural crops, as they reduce energy consumption. However, changes in lighting technology are known to affect abiotic and biotic interactions in the phyllosphere, e.g. READ MORE
