Paper Abstract

The increasing interrelationship between different areas of research is making essential the establishment of better interdisciplinary communication. The photo-optical instrumentation engineer, who formerly was concerned only with such matters as resolution and other physical optical problems in designing lens systems that transmit light for viewing by the human eye, must now consider the biological effects of light energy on the retinal hypothalamic endocrine system and its ultimate influence on hormone production and environmental health factors.
