Our monthly LEDs Magazine Applications Digest features a Profile piece on the extensive work undertaken at the Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine’s Light and Health Research Center (LHRC). The breadth of investigation at LHRC — including studies in elder care, skin-tone bias in pulse oximetry technology, discomfort glare with automotive lighting, pathogen control in agriculture, and much more — is exciting. As the team points out, “people who know us for just one of these areas may have no idea about the other areas we work in.”

We also have an update on rebate program trends from Craig DiLouie, who found that lighting rebates are still going strong, as a growing focus on energy efficiency through controls will further their adoption into commercial environments. Meanwhile, the stall in horticultural LED lighting appears to be easing, with a number of new project and trial announcements.
