LEDs Magazine 40 Under 40 Profile: Robert Soler

July 24, 2020
Honoree Robert Soler of BIOS Lighting has worked in wide-ranging applications of solid-state lighting.

Robert Soler’s work life in SSL has been anything but boring as he has worked in R&D on wide-ranging applications, not to mention exciting ones. Prior to co-founding BIOS, he was part of the team that helped NASA deploy an effective circadian lighting system for use on the International Space Station. At BIOS, he has continued work in the lighting for health and wellbeing field; he also worked in horticultural lighting and even with Olympic and professional athletic organizations on lighting strategies.

Soler has presented at a number of our conferences including Strategies in Light and the Lighting for Health and Wellbeing conference. Soler has been named on more than 85 issued patents. The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded Soler a fellowship to investigate circadian lighting paradigms. Moreover, he serves on the WELL Building Standard light advisory committee.

Soler was on the team that developed the BIOS Bio-Dimming control module that won an LEDs Magazine Sapphire Award back in 2019. That modular SSL product includes a typical mix of LEDs used in tunable products and also adds far-red LEDs that have been associated with a positive response from the human biological system and that enable caregivers to more easily spot the signs of cyanosis.
