Metrics in Motion: Color Metrics

Thursday, June 6, 2019 (12:00 PM-1:00 PM)

Metrics in Motion: Color Metrics

Presenter: Michael Royer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

June 6, 2019

After decades of debate and living with limitation, new color metrics for both color rendition and chromaticity have been standardized by the IES and/or CIE. While science has advanced, the practice has been slower to evolve. This webinar will look at recent developments and how they might change lighting practice over the next 10 years. It will demonstrate how all constituents in the lighting community can benefit from using metrics that fit the capabilities of today’s lighting technologies. Manufacturers can more effectively evaluate performance tradeoffs and communicate product performance, allowing differentiation with novel products; specifiers can reduce uncertainty and avoid unsightly consequences, and researchers can use improved methods to investigate fundamental lighting science challenges.

Michael Royer is a senior engineer at PNNL where he works on the DOE Solid-State Lighting program. He focuses on technology development issues, helping to improve product performance through research, testing, metric development, and engagement with various elements of the lighting industry. Michael is a member of the IES Color and Technical Procedures Committees and was chair of the IES Color Metrics Task Group. Prior to joining PNNL, Michael earned a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering from Penn State University, receiving the 2013 Taylor Technical Talent Award from the IES for his published work. Michael was named a future leader of lighting by LD+A Magazine in 2010 and has authored over 50 journal articles and government reports.learn more...

Smart Lighting is a Myth: LEDs, Illumination, and Future Possibilities

Thursday, June 13, 2019 (12:00 PM-1:00 PM)

Smart Lighting is a Myth: LEDs, Illumination, and Future Possibilities

Illumination business and technology changes wrought by the introduction of LED's for lighting will continue to evolve, even as energy efficiency fades as a driver for LED lighting adoption. The role of lighting in smart systems and services will largely depend upon the battle for the socket (or pole and ceiling) where sensors, intelligence with local edge computing, communications and access to power reside. As the lighting industry wrestles with relevance in interconnected smart buildings and smart city systems, new opportunities for illumination science and engineering are continuing to evolve in human wellbeing, communications, architecture and even displays, and the trajectories of some of these new opportunities will be reviewed.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Date of Webinar: 6/13/2019 12:00 PM Eastern Time

Metrics in Motion: Flicker and Glare

Thursday, July 11, 2019 (12:00 PM-1:00 PM)

Metrics in Motion: Flicker and Glare
Presenter: Naomi Miller, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
July 11, 2019
Flicker and glare are visual phenomena that have several things in common: both can range from mildly annoying to seriously disabling, both can be made worse by poorly designed LED lighting and better by good LED lighting, and both are the subject of research by PNNL that is helping to further industry standard metrics, methods of measurement, and recommended practice. This webinar will provide an up-to-date evaluation of progress in addressing these critical lighting quality factors, their implications for energy-efficient LED lighting, and where additional research is needed.
Naomi Miller has been a Senior Lighting Research Scientist since joining PNNL in 2009. Naomi's work focuses on bridging the knowledge gap between technology and application. She works with clients and stakeholders to overcome the hurdles facing the adoption of energy-efficient lighting products. Her research also focuses on lighting quality and the human impacts of light. Previously, Naomi was the Principal of Naomi Miller Lighting Design in Troy, New York. With over 30 architectural lighting design awards, Naomi is a nationally recognized expert in the field of lighting. She chaired the IES Quality of the Visual Environment committee for 8 years and was a principal member of the writing team for the IES's Light + Design: A Guide to Designing Quality Lighting for People and Buildings. She currently serves on the IES Board of Directors and is a Fellow of both the IES and IALD.learn more...
