Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for Dec. 19, 2022. We’re continuing our peek into the top stories of the year with the four most-read news stories below. In addition, the editor’s pick for the most compelling health-related article we published this year is one that underscores ongoing debate between academia and lighting industry stakeholders. Conversation continues as to whether circadian lighting science is established enough to prove out in commercial products and projects.

I find just about every application of LEDs to be extremely dynamic and so experimentation in materials, thermal management, optical design, power management, and form factor continues to drive new developments all the time. In light of that, don’t miss the opportunity for your latest solid-state lighting innovations to be recognized by our panel of industry judges for ingenuity, efficiency, ease of integration or use, reliability, and performance in the 2023 BrightStar Awards. Tomorrow marks the Early Bird deadline, but the program doesn’t close until Jan. 31, 2023.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
