Paper Abstract

Technologies are needed to provide information about the state of our circadian system to our conscious awareness such that we can take appropriate action to avoid and to correct light-induced circadian disruption. In addition to the implicit promises of solid-state lighting to improve energy efficiency and the quality of the visual environment, solid-state lighting also promises to maintain our health and well-being by precisely tailoring light and dark throughout the 24-hour day.
