NRC-IRC began in 2008 to investigate LED technologies with two overlapping activities: the development of new ideas for office lighting with LEDs, and laboratory experiments addressing how people would use and respond to the color-tuning capabilities of solid-state lighting (SSL) systems. This article gives a sample of the activities in this project, and additional information can be found at www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/projects/irc/solid-state.html.
