Light Awareness – Measurement and Application
12 May at 12:00 – 19:00 CEST
Top researchers with an interest in light from four different universities in Sweden will give presentations at the School of Engineering – Jönköping University on topics including physics, visual ergonomics, chronobiology, design and architecture.
There will be demonstrations and hands-on measurements on the topic of flicker and glare in relation to their effects on human ergonomics.
The design implications of different light measurements will also be discussed and these will include: solar radiation, spectra and intensity from different light sources.
We’ll also consider how measurement such as colour temperature or alpha-optics interact with environmental factors, building design and human nature.
